HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF) is a nonprofit that empowers individuals and families to overcome financial barriers related to catastrophic injury through grass-roots fundraising. HelpHOPELive provides the guidance, resources and support needed to raise funds to bridge the gap between what health insurance will pay and what is actually needed to heal, live and thrive.
Additional Ways to Assist Logan Schweiter and the Schweiter Family
For the second consecutive year the Philly Charity Showdown will raise money for HelpHOPELive in honor of Logan Schweiter. Logan, a student at St. Katherine’s of Siena School in Wayne and an enthusiastic rising lacrosse player in the Conestoga Youth Lacrosse (CYLAX) program, nearly drowned when trapped before being rescued from floodwaters near his Wayne, PA home in July 2011. Logan is fighting to recover from severe brain damage suffered as a result of the tragic incident. HelpHOPELive has been instrumental in supporting Logan and the Schweiter family, as well other families who have suffered catastrophic injury.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 on the night to support Logan. Will you help us reach it? There are many ways to help:
