” there are dreamers that dream and dreamers that do… Both organizations are dreaming doers.”

Disability Dream & Do (D3Day)

A quote made of our new partnership with FofV and this wonderful organization

Pulling Each Other Along,

to help share the healing power of community, joy and music.

Pulling Each Other Along

“ working principally with children and young adults with differing disabilities and challenges to explore potential.”

What Is
Pulling Each Other Along?

It is a movement where we not only recognize our own personal achievements but also take the opportunity to pay it forward and to recognize the person, people, or beliefs that pulled us along to our own relative greatness. Without this driving energy during our moments of trepidation, we would have been unlikely to achieve success.

It is too easy to let a sense of self-doubt, fear, and lack of confidence take over, and having the person or team in your corner to pull, push, get out of the way, or even drag you through those moments is absolutely invaluable.

Todd Civin reached out to Doug Cornfield to highlight the story of Dave Clark and the Disability Dream & Do sports camps that Dave & Doug organized in a compilation book. During this time Doug proposed to Todd the compilation book go a different direction. Todd agreed and the two (Doug and Todd) formed a team to write the “Pulling Each Other Along” book together. This all took place during the initial phase of the Covid19 shutdown. After formulating a plan, Doug & Todd started to reach out to people in their network about being a part of this book. The response was incredible and the chapters were overfilled quickly. The interviews and the writing began and now the fun begins as we launch this new venture.

This book and mission was born from the kindness of a first-grade classmate that was never forgotten. Todd Civin and Doug Cornfield partnered together to share stories that focus on incredible people helping and being helped by others. The mission is to bring people together by emphasizing the good in human nature and divide because of differences we all have.

Todd Civin and Doug Cornfield are both authors and have highlighted the work with many different people of all walks of life, and especially those in the disability communities. The two have different skill sets and have worked together to bring these incredible stories to the world.

The Disability Dream and Do (D3Day) sports camps were created by Dave Clark, the only pitcher in professional sports history to pitch on crutches, and Doug Cornfield, a former NCAA medal winning runner at Georgia, who himself had a child born with no arms.

These camps allow professional players to interact with children with special needs in various drills and compete in sports with no limitations. 

In 2016, Dave Stevens, who was born without legs but played college football and minor league baseball, came on board as the D3Day camps expanded to other cities in the US. Dave and Doug now put on camps all over the country and share their amazing stories as well as inspire others to look past a disability and turn it into an ability.
