CLEVELAND - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Independence) recently attended the 2013 Tolerance Fair, held on Sunday, March 10th at the I-X Center and presented Justin Bachman with a commendation.


The 2nd Annual Tolerance Fair gained it’s inspiration from Justin, a sophomore at Solon High School. He has Tourette’s Syndrome, a condition which causes him to make movements and sounds that he cannot control.


The first Tolerance Fair was held in 2011 at the Solon Community Center, with 48 organizations and over 1,000 participants. This year the event was moved to a larger venue and hosted 131 exhibitors with over 3,000 attendees. The guest speaker for the event was Elizabeth Voudouris from Business Volunteers and the keynote speaker was Kyle Maynard, the first quadruple amputee to climb Mount Kilimanjaro without assistance and author of "No Excuses."


“I am absolutely humbled by Justin and Kyle, and the other attendees I had the pleasure of meeting today,” Rep Anielski said. “Tolerance and acceptance shows the importance of understanding people's differences. Remember to Honor Good Deeds!"
