Charlie… At 2 pounds, 4 ounces, Charlie literally fit in the palm of our hand. Her journey at Achievement Academy began when she was only 4 months old.

Charlie had a rough start to life that included many obstacles to overcome. Learning to crawl and walk took much time and effort. Last year she was able to join a local cheerleading squad and had the time of her life! We truly believe that if it weren’t for Achievement Academy and United Way, Charlie would not be where she is today.
