Catherine Ehlinger has been involved with FRA along with her parents as one of our “Founding Families” and she has participated in our programs ever since. She began in our early intervention program, and then when her mother started the original “Our Chance To Dance Program,” Catherine danced right along with her. As she got older, she volunteered as an assistant in the program helping with the younger students in classes and on stage at the recital. Catherine also attended summer camp, Teen Talk, Young Adult Conversations and is now in our Adult Classes including Dance with Jay and karate. Catherine works at a local McDonald’s, attends college programs at Brookdale and participates in Special Olympics. She is most proud of her Gold Medal in Basketball at Special Olympics and her scholarship award at Brookdale. More recently, Catherine has enjoyed trips to Rome, Florence, Sienna and the Turks and Caicos with her family. She also travelled with a special travel group to Lourdes, France without her family and had wonderful experiences there. Catherine enjoys going out to dinner with family and friends, and participating in the many FRA programs and events. She is proud to be an FRA ambassador!
