Bobby Fox is Marking Four Years of Ice Golfing for CP
At first, Dan admits they were "swinging from the
hip" and making the most of what they had to make the event happen.
"We had a fun time making the course, deciding on tennis balls vs. golf
balls. It was organized choas!" he says. "The first year was so much
fun and presenting the check [at the CP Telethon] was a great feeling."
Dan says that being at the Telethon with WBAY’s Bill Jartz and Frank Hermans
[of Let Me Be Frank Productions] was energizing, and he wants to keep reliving
the feeling that he gets when they get to make a difference for Bobby and CP.
Dan Domrzalski and Deb Fox, Bobby's mom, both agree that they want the event to get bigger and better each year. With $13,000 raised in 2021, their goal for 2022 is $20,000 to benefit CP. Deb says, "It is very heartwarming to see people in this community come out and support the event and the organization." For Bobby, the services CP provides are ones he can't get anywhere else, and CP means a lot to him and his family. Deb says that at CP, Bobby isn't the only person using a wheelchair, he sees other people like him, and he has friends. Bobby's favorite activity at CP is swimming. The Aquatic Center is known for having therapeutic warm-water pools. While he uses his wheelchair each day to move about, at CP's Aquatic Center, Bobby walks. "He does laps in the pool," Deb says. For Bobby, CP is a place where he reaches for new goals, socializes with friends, and most importantly, he feels like he belongs.
