Celebrate Life Fundraising Event
To celebrate our past, our present and our dedication to always future forward, the sixth annual fundraising and recognition event, Celebrate Life, is planned for Friday, September 25.

On With Life is on a lifetime mission to support the needs of those we serve, and we hope you will join us by sponsoring and/or attending the Celebrate Life event. While so much is unknown at this point due to the current pandemic, this event is an important fundraiser to On With Life. The event may look different than it has in the past, but we appreciate your support of our program. Funds raised through Celebrate Life will enhance On With Life now and into the future through unrestricted support of innovative program development, specialized therapy equipment and healing environments.
