Disability Awareness Nights
In 2002, EP Global Communications, Inc. created a dynamic community outreach program called Disability Awareness Night (DAN). The mission of DAN is to expand awareness of the 54 million Americans with disabilities by highlighting their extraordinary achievements and the perseverance and dedication of the families, caregivers, physicians, nurses, therapists and teachers involved in their care and development. The presentation of the EP Maxwell J. Schleifer Distinguished Service Award (named after the founder and former editor-in-chief of Exceptional Parent magazine) at each DAN event signifies the remarkable accomplishments that can be achieved under difficult circumstances. Since the program’s inception, DAN events have been held across the country honoring hundreds of people for their accomplishments and donating thousands of tickets to special needs organizations.
