18th-31st: Hannah's Hope, a Northwest Indiana non-profit, provides developmental equipment to kids with special needs and connects families by making life and communities more accessible. Hannah's Hope is a charity started in honor of Hannah Martinez. Hannah was born with severe brain damage caused by a possible prenatal stroke. With this, Hannah faced many challenges and was severely developmentally delayed. Hannah's family and close friends were inspired by her sweet smile, bright blue eyes, and incredible strength. With that said, Hannah's Hope was born. Sweet Hannah passed away on July 30, 2012. Although Hannah's life would seem too short to many, those who were touched by her understand that the quality of her existence far exceeded the quantity of time she lived. Hannah has inspired a community of friends, family, and even strangers to help other children in ways we could have never dreamed. Hannah's Hope will continue her legacy and we know that Hannah will live on forever in our memories, and in our hearts. Learn More
