A Note from Bonner...


Hello Friends & Family of OMF!


We've had an exciting start to 2014.  Our national "Team Jake" program is in full force. We have Team Jakers competing in events all over the U.S. and pushing themselves beyond their own limits to achieve remarkable goals and raise money for OM Foundation's special needs kids.  Way to go Team Jakers!


The book is moving along nicely and has been submitted to the publisher.  The team is still reviewing ideas for the title and the book is set to launch in 2015.  I am very grateful for everyone at HarperCollins, IMG and the esteemed Neal Bascomb, New York Times Bestselling Author, as we work towards the launch of my book.  We are also very thankful for our new friends at Catalyst-IMG, who will be leading the PR efforts as we get ready to launch the book tour.

Team Jake at OC Marathon - May 4


The Robert Family at the OC Marathon in memory of Jake.

On May 4th, we had our most successful OC Marathon / Team Jake effort.  As you may know, the Robert Family created "Team Jake" in 2007 in memory of their son, Jake.  Team Jake comes back to the OC Marathon each year to celebrate his memory & raise money for special needs children. OMF is honored to be a part of this event.  This year we had over 200 runners/volunteers and raised over $10,000 imemory of young Jake Ryan Robert.  OMF, Team Jake & the Robert Family celebrated our success post race with a nice luncheon at Dave & Busters, Irvine.  Thanks to all who ran, volunteered, donated and cheered everyone on at the sidelines. We've posted pictures from the event on our Facebook page Enjoy!

OMF Celebrates 5 Years!

On April 30th, OMF celebrated our 5th year anniversary.  As we look back over the last 5 years, it is wonderful to see what we've all accomplished together. We've made an incredible impact in raising over $1 Million Dollars. That equates to over 10,000 hours of therapy for special needs children.  Check out this video OMF 5th Anniversary Video which summarizes what we've achieved together in impacting the lives of special needs children.
