Hanover Girl Raps for Easter Seals

Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Natalie McDonald creates a rap song about her love for Easter Seals camp for Telethon.

11 year old Natalie McDonald of Hanover is taking on a fun new project -- and she is hoping Grey and Bruce residents will help her out.

Natalie has created her own rap song, explaining why she loves going to Easter Seals camp.

Her rap song is on YouTube and you can find it by typing in Easter Seals Rap.

Natalie's Mom Christina McDonald is encouraging residents to visit the site and push the LIKE button.

The top video's will appear on the Easter Seals Telethon on Sunday April 10th.

Voting closes on Thursday April 7th.

McDonald says the project is her family's way of sharing why they love Easter Seals Camp.

She says it's the one place where children with disabilities can go and forget about their challenges and instead focus on having fun and being a kid.

Natalie has been going to Easter Seals Camp for years.

She suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy a genetic disease that attacks the nerve cells in the spinal cord.

And although Natalie may be confined to a wheelchair -- her spirit is not.

Natalie -- with the help of her mother -- has raised thousands of dollars over the years to help send kids just like her to Easter Seals Camp.

It costs two thousand dollars to send a child to Easter Seals Camp for 10 days.
