Mindy Gleason, a mother not afraid to open her mouth and speak for change, discusses how she is making a difference for children in her community and how you can find the courage to make a change in your neighborhood or city.
Mindy is the mother of two amazing girls. Her oldest, Presley, has a rare disease causing her to be in a wheelchair and on a ventilator. Presley is incredibly social and loves to be with her friends. Because of her issues, Presley has a hard time finding parks where she can play. She is always stopped by wood chips and park barriers.
Mindy was inspired to approach the City of Orem and ask for changes at a local park, but the park idea has gone much further. Now the City of Orem is building an All-Abilities park where children of all abilities can play together. Listen to Mindy’s story of triumph and her advice on how to make something happen in your community
