Mac Shapland was a person who faced many physical and developmental challenges but always kept a positive attitude and was determined to do it his way.   Mac brought joy and laughter into everything he did, helping others see the best in life and the value of all people.

Mac and his family blazed many trails that impacted other families in Minnesota and across the country. In honor of Mac, the Shapland family has established Mac’s Fund to provide financial support for families whose children, youth or young adults have special health care needs and/or disabilities to assist with costs associated with unmet needs related to participating in or accessing activities that are not covered by other financial sources.
