I also get to express my heart-felt thanks to people who are truly making a difference.

On behalf of the families and clients we serve, our staff and members of our board, thank you. Thank you for your time, your gifts and for sharing True Friends with those who can benefit from our services. Together, we are truly making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. Sincerely,

Ed Stracke , President & CEO



One of our most popular Ventures Travel trips is to a dude ranch in Tanque Verde, Arizona. The week is full of gourmet meals, horseback riding, relaxation by the pool and interacting with other guests on the ranch. Unlike other vacations, the dude ranch is a group experience. This means the entire ranch gets to know one another and engages in activities together throughout the week. One of the most rewarding parts of facilitating a trip is seeing not only how it impacts the travelers, but how it can impact others as well. During the third day on the ranch, a man pulled one of our travel staff aside. He explained that the dude ranch was an annual vacation for his family and this year’s trip was something special because of the interactions they had with our travelers.

Ventures Travel served

He said that witnessing the pure joy and enthusiasm our travelers and staff had for the rodeo elevated the entire event to a new level, as if their actions gave permission to the whole crowd to be silly and have fun. Another man pulled aside our staff and wanted to share that his family’s interactions with our participants opened new discussions for them about disabilities and abilities, care and respect. He had been coming to the ranch for 30 years and said it was a privilege to spend the week with our group. Several of the families from that week called the ranch with a request to book when Ventures Travel would be bringing another group, because they found it so enjoyable. It is amazing to witness the growth that travel can inspire in both our travelers and the community.

Lions Clubs have been long-time supporters of True Friends and it’s never been more evident than with the gifts given recently. Based on a campaign in 2015 the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) presented True Friends with a check for $100,000! To make this LCIF grant possible, True Friends needed to match at least $100,000 – and 37 different Minnesota Lions clubs stepped in to help. The LCIF supports the causes that individual Lions Clubs support with special programs like this matching grant. A total of $230,000 was raised to construct a first-of-its-kind wheelchair accessible, high ropes course and dual 600 foot zip lines at Camp Courage. Additionally, four vans for special needs transportation were purchased.

Special thanks to the MD5M Lions Clubs and donors, including Paul’s Pals Foundation - who provided the lead gift, Finish Line Youth Foundation and the Buuck Family Foundation. These gifts helped us go way beyond our goal. The result of this outstanding generosity and partnership truly enhanced the innovative programs at True Friends. Course designer and True Friends’ Manager of Program Development, Jason Colvin says this course is the result of two years of planning, fundraising and design. “There is no other course in the country with this creative design for individuals in wheelchairs,” Colvin said. “The static course with continuous belay allows for complete independence in navigating the high elements in a wheelchair.” 5

-Carol Sibinski, Secretary of the Camp Friendship Auxiliary

For 40 years the Camp Friendship Auxiliary has been a huge support and help to Camp Friendship, spending countless hours volunteering and donating items and money to camp. The group officially began in 1975 and had 12 members from the cities of Annandale, Buffalo, Maple Lake and Monticello. They supported camp’s mission and held regular meetings discussing plans to volunteer and donate materials. One of their first accomplishments was remodeling the kitchen, which cost $500. Soon the group began growing in size and in the number of projects they accomplished each year. They began fundraising by hosting Tupperware parties, bake sales, Swappers Meet sales, dance parties, craft sales, quilt raffles, fashion shows, public monthly luncheons and their annual Holiday party. Donations from the Auxiliary have provided many scholarships for campers in need of financial assistance. Today, they continue their great support of Camp Friendship and True Friends. The Auxiliary has grown to 29 members with an additional 8 honorary Auxiliary members. They continue to volunteer, help with mailings, provide homemade treats for camp staff, grow and tend a beautiful garden at camp and host a popular holiday party that raised $16,000 in 2015! Within the past five years their holiday parties have raised $77,000. President and CEO of True Friends, Ed Stracke says this about the Auxiliary, “True Friends could not ask for a more committed and dedicated group of volunteers and local ambassadors. The Auxiliary has certainly played a significant role in our growth and success throughout the years. We are so grateful for all that they do in support of our mission.” They volunteered over 1,350 hours in 2015.

-Esther Hanlon, Co-Chair of the Camp Friendship Auxiliary


Gabby Ridlon is our most dedicated youth volunteer from 2015. Her work with camp has impacted many lives, including her own. We thank her for her commitment to providing experiences and adventures to our participants. Gabby says, “Volunteering with True Friends has not only shaped me to be a more understanding and kind person but it has led me to what I want to do as my future career! I am a totally different person today, compared to who I was when I started volunteering at camp and I am SO grateful for that!” “In under two years Gabby has served more volunteer hours with True Friends than most people would in a lifetime. Her commitment, character and quality of service have been irreplaceable in our programs. The impact she has had on everyone she comes in contact with is remarkable,” said True Friends Volunteer Services Coordinator, Maureen O’Connor.

Gabby currently has more than hours in 2014 and includes

Looking for the definition of True Friends? Then look no further than the organizers of an incredible 10+ year event. Mark and Debbie Steen, along with Bob Harnett, have been hosting the Annual Circle of Friends Golf Classic that has netted more than $1,500,000 in 11 years! Nearly all of the work for this successful event is done by the Steens, along with their friends and family. Mark and Bob work in the financial investment industry and invite their colleagues to support the True Friends mission. Thousands of children and adults with disabilities are able to have life-changing experiences at camp because of these generous individuals. “True Friends is an organization that Debbie and I feel very strongly about, and we have been long time donors and supporters,” Mark said. Additionally, Mark and Bob served on the True Friends board of directors for many years. Circle of Friends is more than just a catchy name for an event. The story of friendship starts more than 30 years ago. Bob’s brother and sister-in-law, Gabbi and Barb Harnett, were faced with the reality that their three-year-old son Joey suffered permanent brain damage from a prolonged seizure. While still reeling from the effects of their son’s sudden disability, their 18-month-old daughter Molly also suffered a prolonged seizure with the same damaging result a year later. The Steens, along with Bob (Joey and Molly’s uncle), have continued a tradition first started by Gabbi and Barb, to raise money to help thousands of kids with disabilities attend camp. Today, Joey and Molly (and their brother, Neal) still benefit from this camp program, along with the thousands of others who receive financial support from Circle of Friends. “The Steens and Harnetts are such great ambassadors for True Friends,” said President & CEO Ed Stracke. “The long-term impact of their involvement with the Circle of Friends and their fundraising efforts have been phenomenal. These amazing people enable True Friends to help so many participants.” 8

Joel and Mary Lee Jennings have always been committed to helping others in their community and around the world. In fact, their daughter and her family, who have a son with special needs, began a ministry for children with disabilities in Nairobi, Kenya. Closer to home, True Friends is one of the nonprofits they’ve supported each year since 1991. Joel and Mary Lee have two grandchildren with special needs, which led to a strong interest in organizations that serve this community. One of their granddaughters attends a True Friends camp every summer and says it is the best week of her year! “We have seen the True Friends camps and have met a number of the leaders and we are impressed,” Joel said. “We love and respect True Friends and are supremely grateful that they are willing to devote much of their life to reaching out in love to individuals in this special community.” 9

Paul’s Pals Foundation (formerly the Paul Adelman Children with Disabilities Endowment Fund) was founded in 1996 and has been a generous donor to Camp Courage and Camp Friendship for the past two decades. To date, the foundation has given more than $250,000 to support “projects that promote inclusion and accessibility for individuals with disabilities.” The Paul Adelman Golf Classic & Paul’s Party benefits various charities, and has grown to be the eighth largest in the state. This foundation’s gifts have fulfilled a wide variety of camp needs - from a multi-sport court to a lakefront accessibility project, to a therapy horse program lift and support for camper scholarships. A unique and needed gift of generators at each True Friends camp was provided by a special “Fund-A-Dream” live auction. In 2015, camp received a $30,000 grant to develop a robotics and shooting sports program. The renewed robotics program is being offered at Camp Courage North. Sling shot archery is now being offered,


along with an outdoor old west saloon shooting gallery, at Camp Courage. Floyd Adelman and his wife, Andi, founded Paul’s Pals. Floyd and Andi’s son, Paul, is the inspiration behind their generosity and passion for helping individuals with disabilities. Paul lived a short, but inspirational, life with disabilities from three brain tumor surgeries over seven years. He had attended Camp Courage. His spirit lives on through the fund and the programs it supports. Floyd is also a member of the True Friends Board of Directors, serving as chairman during the first three years of the Courage Camps acquisition. “Floyd has the perfect blend of business experience, acumen, professional contacts and passion for providing lifechanging experiences for children and adults with disabilities,” said Ed Stracke, True Friends President & CEO. “The support from his foundation is another incredible gift to this organization.”
