No one knows better than Kim Blickenstaff that good things happen when you believe they will. It’s his positive attitude that served as the foundation for an incredibly successful career, allowing him to drive innovation and transformation in the medical device industry. And Kim applies that same thinking and positive energy right here at home. He, along with his company KDB Group, believes our community has a past worth celebrating and a future that is brighter than we ever imagined. Through their efforts and investments, they are creating a critical mass of optimism and sending good vibrations that are reverberating all around. Like Kim, Easterseals embraces the power of positivity to ensure that children with disabilities can reach their full potential. This year’s Tribute event builds upon three decades of honoring central Illinois’ most notable citizens, and in that time, it has raised more than $10 million to support programs and services for children with disabilities and their families. For more than 100 years, Easterseals Central Illinois has been an advocate and champion for children with developmental delays, disabilities, and other special needs in our community. We provide diagnostic, education, therapeutic, and recreation services along with family support and community programs. Like Kim, we believe in limitless possibilities – for our children and for our community.
