In January 2012 Simone participated in Champlain’s humanitarian trip to the small village of Santa Julia in Nicaragua. There she met 4 year-old Milton who was living with cerebral palsy. Determined to help Milton, Simone founded “Milton’s Cause” and spent the remainder of the year fundraising . The funds raised were used to purchase an adapted wheelchair and to provide Milton with assistance from a special care specialist. In January 2013, Simone once again participated in Champlain’s trip to Nicaragua and accompanied by an occupational therapist, Simone brought Milton his adapted wheelchair.
