Kapable Story: How One Little Girl Inspired an Entire Community

By Jessica Waller, Senior Director, Snacks Customer Marketing and Kapable Co-Chair

While Hannah, a kindergartener from Vicksburg, Michigan was getting ready for a life-changing surgery, a community was working to help make her return to school just a little easier.

Hannah’s form of cerebral palsy affects her legs, requiring her to wear braces and use a walker.  During school recess, a group of fifth graders from Tobey Elementary School in Vicksburg, Michigan noticed Hannah’s routine of playing closely next to her caregiver in the sandbox.  They soon realized she was unable to navigate the playground equipment.

The students met with the principal and started a fundraiser to build an accessible playground to help Hannah fully engage in the school environment.

Jillian, a Kapable ERG team member and Snacks Customer Marketing Manager, caught the story as it unfolded on social media.  She thought this would be the perfect chance for the Kapable ERG to show the local community what the group is all about. 

Kellogg supported the Kapable ERG and donated funds allowing the finished product to include a fully accessible swing set, merry-go-round, special handrails, and launch spots to aid walking and wheelchair accessibility.  This is just one great example of how Kellogg is making a difference in individuals with disabilities lives!
