Stories of Ordinary Magic

Ordinary Magic happens through the strength and resilience of Wilder's participants, staff and volunteers, and community members. Here is a video of Mary Anne's Wilder story, which originally played for  guests at Ordinary Magic, and four more stories of Wilder participants and staff who are creating positive change in their lives and communities.

Thank you to Mary Anne for sharing this story with Wilder supporters!
