It continues to be a way to honor Carolyn Thurman Rustvold’s memory and to work with the children she loved. It is also a way to heal her family after the tragic loss of a very special young woman.

Carolyn’s Causes is a 501-c-3 non-profit formed to conduct programs for children with disabilities and their families in memory of Carolyn Thurman Rustvold, an occupational therapist who died in 2003.
We began offering a camp in the summer of 2004 that offered therapy to children with special needs. The participants in the camp are both students and their parents in order to create long lasting change and impact. We also offer scholarships, throughout the year, for children who would benefit from private therapy. The professionals involved are special education teachers, speech language pathologists, physical and occupational therapists.
