Joe Korkowski reports on the special day for Sophia Rose Nohre and the students at her school.

This year our kindergarten class wanted to raise awareness at our school for Wishbone Day and Osteogenesis Imperfecta with our friend Sophia. The project started small, but quickly grew as we worked with her family and gained assistance from outside resources. With the help of our good friends at Thrivent Financial we were able to purchase yellow t-shirts for all the students in our class with our themed slogan, “Can you say Osteogenesis Imperfecta?” on the front, and the phonetic pronunciation [os-tee-oh-jen-uh-sis  im-per-fek-tuh] with a definition on the back.
