What people are saying about ICORP

My interactions with this brave group of people has been phenomenal. I constantly see Marc McDonald encouraging the teams and motivates everyone like no other leader I have known. They are always kind, caring and committed and they give much more than they receive.  I support ICORP and their volunteers wholeheartedly.
