Our Committees & Volunteers
STEVE LECOURS, Events Coordinator
Professional experience: graduated from Rhode Island College in 1991 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. I have been in the retail grocery business for over 30 years and currently employed at Dave’s marketplace for the last 10 years as a manager. Also, I have volunteered and coached for Special Olympics for past 13 years.
What does the Foundation mean to me: Creating the Ethan Henry Lecours Foundation was very important to me because it was a way to keep Ethan’s memory alive and to pay tribute a courageous and valiant fighter. The 2 best days of my life were when my sons were born and worst day of my life was Tuesday January 25th, 2011 when my precious son Ethan lost his battle. Ethan’s death has left an incredible hole in my heart but forming this foundation is allowing me to grieve for the loss of my son while carrying out our mission which is to provide support to families and organizations caring for individuals with developmental disabilities and special needs just like Ethan.
Ethan was only on this earth for a short while but made a tremendous impact on people who have crossed his path, especially his resilience to keep fighting during tough times through his difficult medical journey. There is not a day, hour, minute that goes by that something or someone doesn’t remind me how blessed I was to have a son like Ethan. Through this foundation we will be his VOICE to spread awareness that individuals with intellectual disabilities are real people.
