Do you know a Rise'ing Star?!

Every year at Rise's Celebrate Rise Fundraising Gala, we take the opportunity to recognize some really amazing men and women who are served in our programs. The public is invited to nominate people for this honor.

Do you know someone who has overcome obstacles and challenges and is working to achieve his/her own goals and live a self-determined life? Please tell us about him or her using this form.

The deadline for submissions is July 21, 2017. Awardees will be notified in August and be honored at Celebrate Rise on October 5.
