ABOUT CARING ANGEL PAGEANTS
CARING ANGEL is a family oriented program established in 2007. Caring Angels Pageants is operated by Rita and Ron Wedell and the Wedell Family. The National Director, Rita Wedell has over 30 years of pageant experience as a director, producer, coach, competitor, and mother of competitors. Our goal is to have families gather together for a fun event where children can utilize their competitive spirit as well as serve as a fund raiser for the national charity we have chosen to support which is United Cerebral Palsy. CARING ANGEL has been named in honor and loving memory of our son, CORY SCOTT WEDELL.
ABOUT CEREBRAL PALSY
Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term encompassing a group of non-progressive, non-contagious conditions that cause physical disability to the human development. Cerebral refers to the area of the brain called the cerebrum and palsy refers to disorder of movement. CP is caused by damage to the motor control center of the developing brain and can occur during pregnancy (75%), childbirth (5%), and after birth (15%) to age 3. CP can also occur through doctor error during childbirth. There is no known cure.
