TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - For nearly 100 years the Easterseals Capper Foundation has been helping people with disabilities.
Thursday night the foundation held a special reception to honor its supporters.
Hundreds of people came to the downtown Ramada hotel to watch the presentation of awards and hear special guests tell their stories.
One of those special guests was Colton Selman, a two-year old boy who survived major complications at birth.
Colton is still overcoming developmental setbacks, but his family says the Capper foundation has held their hand every step of the way through his therapy.
Colton’s mother, Jamie Selman said, "Colton progressed from a wobbly independent sit, to full stand, to standing on his own, and now taking a few steps towards an object."
