Taking Flight: Lila

MEDFORD, Ore. — The non-profit organization, Sparrow Clubs is expanding, reaching new students while helping another child in need.

For the first time, Logos Charter School is adopting a Sparrow. It’s not only a first for Logos, it’s also a first for Sparrow Clubs: adopting a child to home-schooled students.

For a group of home-schooled students willing to try new things, they now have a Sparrow to match. Lila was born with spina bifida. At 6-months-old, she had surgery to free up her spinal cord, and has another surgery to go, but making her way through a crowd of new friends it’s obvious she’s defied doctors.

It’s a step forward for Lila, with Sparrow Clubs taking its own step forward. Standing, something that took Lila extra time to master, comes quickly for children who want to help. Support to help their Sparrow stand, walk and even fly.

In just the weekend after logos students adopted Lila, more than 50 students got together to do 75 hours of community service, earning $750 for Lila and her family.
