#TeamCaleighRae and the South Tech Early Childhood Education Major

caleigh2Caleigh Rae Jackson and her twin brother, Carter, enrolled in the South Tech Early Childhood Center in August and it didn’t take long for teachers and classmates to become enamored and inspired. Caleigh, nearly 3 years old, was born with Apert syndrome. Apert syndrome is a genetic anomaly characterized by the premature fusion of certain skull bones.

When Caleigh first started at South Technical, she was unable to walk without assistance. Five days later, Caleigh amazed her peers, her teachers, and her family by walking across the preschool room. She quickly began walking laps around the room and hasn’t stopped since.

caleigh3Caleigh and Carter’s dad, Chris Jackson, who works for SSD’s Bridges Program, is the co-founder of the Rae of Sunshine Foundation along with his wife, Crystal Jackson. The foundation raises awareness for Apert syndrome and craniofacial conditions.

When the high school students in the Early Childhood Education major discovered the Rae of Sunshine Foundation was holding a 5K run/walk, they quickly leapt into action. The students made #TeamCaleighRae t-shirts and woke up early Saturday, September 24th to drive to Spanish Lake where they joined a crowd of supporters to walk the 5K.
