“FUN, FUN, FUN” At STARability All Inclusive 3k

Running, Walking and Rolling Together!

The forecast for the STARability 3K Fun Run, Walk & Roll was sunny with a chance of smiles! We were so happy to see so many community members of all different ability levels come together to celebrate inclusion. It was an early morning start, but everyone showed up bright-eyed and ready to participate. Over 100 ran, walked, and rolled together, sharing stories and encouragement along the way. We are truly thankful to all the amazing individuals who came out and supported our mission to transform the lives of individuals with disabilities through social, vocational and educational connections to the community while strengthening awareness and respect for individual abilities. Below are some of the wonderful highlights from the event, if you would like to see more photos from the event CLICK HERE.
