Todd Civin reached out to Doug Cornfield to highlight the story of Dave Clark and the Disability Dream & Do sports camps that Dave & Doug organized in a compilation book. During this time Doug proposed to Todd the compilation book go a different direction. Todd agreed and the two (Doug and Todd) formed a team to write the “Pulling Each Other Along” book together. This all took place during the initial phase of the Covid19 shutdown. After formulating a plan, Doug & Todd started to reach out to people in their network about being a part of this book. The response was incredible and the chapters were overfilled quickly. The interviews and the writing began and now the fun begins as we launch this new venture.
This book and mission was born from the kindness of a first-grade classmate that was never forgotten.
