the superhero project
logan’s touch-a- truck
Our little Logan is a fighter, a do it at his own pace and his own way kind of kid. He has come so very far in the last few years despite challenges he has faced.
In partnering with The Superhero Project, our goal is to help NICU families in need, that do not have the same support and resources my husband and I did.
Our NICU Story
I found out I was pregnant with Logan at 6 weeks which just so happened to be the exact day the world shut down from Covid. My pregnancy was not your average aside from the lockdown, isolation, and the social distancing as I had a lot some minor things that needed monitoring during the pregnancy. It was a recipe for anxiety especially for someone who already had anxiety.
Having to leave your baby at the hospital when you are discharged is honestly something no one ever prepares you for in the months leading up to delivery. It was not not something discussed or even thought about during the course of my pregnancy. My memory of being wheeled down the hallway by the nurse with my husband holding my bag walking next to me is something I will never forget. That moment was one of the toughest parts of our story. I couldn’t believe we were actually leaving the hospital without our child. I remember watching a new mom getting wheeled from her room holding her baby. The smile on the woman’sface was priceless as she held her little one close to her. She was leaving the hospital with her child. It was at that moment I put my sunglasses on as we continued down the hall so that no one would see my tears. I felt like I was leaving a piece of my heart behind. Really I was.
Our little Logan is a fighter. He was born early so he needed that extra time to get to where he needed to be. His determination to figure things out, and his willpower (which can sometimes get him in trouble) in everything he does will surely take him places. He is learning and growing so much each week, and I am so thankful that I get to be his Mama.
-The Schenk Family
One of our Superheroes!
My name is Jaclyn Schenk and I am a NICU mom. I have been married to my husband since 2018, and we had our little superhero Logan Michael Schenk in October of 2020.
I am currently a stay-at-home mom to Logan while watching a good friend’s daughter Brielle during the day. Logan is an only child so it is so nice that he has built such a great relationship with Brielle, and that they have been together since he was only a few weeks old. Being able to stay home with him these last three years is such a blessing, and I am so thankful for this time.
I found The Superhero Project through a friend who worked with Kelly, the founder. I immediately fell in love with her and the organization. We did not connect until after Logan was out of the NICU , but the support their organization gives for anyone going through what we did is something you can not put a price tag on. I knew I had to be involved somehow. Kelly and her team at the Super hero project took our vision for this event, and helped us bring it to life.
Thank you to everyone that joined us!
We raised $4853.37!
Despite the date change, there were still so many that showed up to support The Superhero Project. Logan’s first touch a truck was a spectacular day.
This success is all thanks to the incredible support and participation from local businesses and organizations in our community! Thank you to everyone who brought a truck, donated time , money and energy. All of you helped make the day a great success. We would also like to give a big THANK YOU to our sponsors! 👏 We appreciate your dedication to making our event such a success!
