Denise and Cindi met in 1994 when Cindi was working at Grand Valley State University and Denise was enrolled in CBOT (Community Based Occupational Training) where they became fast friends. They developed a mutual trust with each other and supported each other wherever and whenever needed. Denise and Cindi enjoy going to sporting events, ice arena events, and zoos. A major passion of theirs is football! You will find them in front of the TV on Sundays, rooting for their favorite teams (Packers & Lions) with pizza and apple crisp! Over the last twenty nine (29) years they have become each other’s mentors. They guide each other, learn from each other, and solve challenges together. They are truly each other’s best friend and will be forever. It really shows in their involvement with The BIG Step Walk. Cindi heads up the raffle prizes and Denise is a top five (5) fundraiser. You can truly see the admiration they have for each other. This photo was taken at the Special Olympics Inclusions Center where they were supporting their friend, Alison Moore, and her teammates.
