Andrew’s Hugs was created in memory of Andrew Norton. Andrew had Prader-Willi Syndrome, a chromosomal disorder that affected him both mentally and physically. However, that did not stop Andrew from living a full and happy life. That full and happy life was partially due to his involvement with Adult Recreation through Community Living, Special Olympics, and his employment at BCI.
Andrew was fortunate to have the means to participate in just about every event he wanted to, from Cardinal games, Blues games, Mizzou games, shows at the Muny and the Fox, and too many other outings to count. But, there are a lot of adults with disabilities who are not so fortunate.
Andrew’s Hugs would like to raise money to ensure that everyone has a chance to enjoy life to the fullest.
