A special thanks to board members Gary Heckert, Karly Laughlin, and Steve Ritchie, as well as Mike Kelly of Belfint Lyons & Shuman, and supporter, Andy Laughlin, for representing Delaware CarePlan at DFRC's 2023 Annual Blue-Gold All*Star Football Game!

The event, held annually in June at the University of Delaware, is one of DFRC's signature fundraising events and highlights their Hand-in-Hand program, where high school football players, cheerleaders, band members, and ambassadors are matched with children and young adults with intellectual disABILITIES.

Students and their buddies participate in statewide events throughout the year. Delaware CarePlan, Inc. values our partnership with DFRC in making a difference in the lives of those with special needs.
