It was recently announced that Colin will be honored with the Ackerman Moving Families Forward Award during the The Moving Families Forward Gala in October.

“It is my deep privilege to be honored by the Ackerman Institute for the Family,” Colin said in a statement. “Throughout the years, Ackerman has provided a platform of shared knowledge and experience that is essential for the sense of community that all parents long for, for themselves and their children. For parents who have been blessed with a child with Special Needs, this sense of community and togetherness takes on an even more immediate importance.”

He added, “The involvement and support offered throughout Ackerman’s various programs have made a great difference in so many lives and so I am truly humbled to accept this award. As a proud father of a child with Special Needs, I accept it in honor of all parents everywhere, who work tirelessly to ensure that their children get all the care and support that they both need and so richly deserve.”

    I love Colin!! Um, Jared, are you sure that’s his sister? I’m not. But whatever. He has really stepped up for his son and even to the point where he is very publically active, so he deserves the recognition. It will help other people out here.
