Will Kirkpatrick grew up in Urbana and had friends who lived at Cunningham Children’s Home. In high school, he and his friends would fish at nearby Crystal Lake Park.
“I was blown away by how Cunningham’s programs change the lives of young people. I knew I wanted to be a part of it.” That was the reaction of Jack Wallace after attending our HopeBuilders Breakfast in 2015 where he heard from a Cunningham alumnus and Marlin Livingston, our President/CEO. Jack was impressed and inspired by what he learned. Initially, Jack started by giving an annual gift to support the programs and kids’ daily needs at Cunningham.
