We have a small t-shirt workshop in=house. Our adults on the autism spectrum create t-shirts/sweatshirts with a vinyl cutter and heat press to to sell through vendor opportunities to keep the program going. These workshops provide 1) a social outlet; 2) involvement within the community; 3) life skills through inventory processing, cash management and customer interaction. Our product has sold at Meristem, St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church, La Pena Cultural Center (Berkeley), FEAT walk, the Sacramento Drive In, David Lubin's Garden Tour, Article Consignment Boutique and recently our biggest venue yet, Country in the Park hosted by KNCI.
Thank you KNCI!
Country in the Park
We sold 200 shirts at this event on May 12th.
We will set up our t-shirt booth once again at Pet-A-Palooza on June 10th at Elk Grove Regional Park from 9-5 pm. The proceeds from this event will benefit our Fly Fit program, a fitness program for kids/teens/adults with developmental disabilities in collaboration with Elk Grove Police.
Fly Brave partnered with the Elk Grove Police Department, AMPT Fitness, Freedom Tribe Fitness, and SacTown Running to offer a FREE 6-week fitness program for kids/teens/adults with autism and other developmental disabilities in Elk Grove, CA. It was such a success, we are implementing it once again with the PD in the Fall.
We aim to take this program to every law enforcement agency in the surrounding area.

Golf & Guitars hosted by KNCI
Thanks to the kindness of KNCI Country Radio and Paper Clouds Apparel, Fly Brave has been selected as the charity to receive a portion of the proceeds from the Golf and Guitars Event on May 22, 2018.
Pat Still's sons (KNCI) designed this shirt. Lucas used our logo to create it and Demitri, who is on the autism spectrum, colored it in. The proceeds from this shirt directly benefit our program.
