STARability’s 6th Annual Run, Walk & Roll 5K on Oct. 21 Garners Support from Sponsors and $10,000 Match

STARability Foundation is pleased to announce Inspired Closets SWFL as the presenting sponsor of its 6th Annual Run, Walk & Roll 5K on Saturday, Oct. 21, at Paradise Coast Sports Complex in Naples. The event will begin at 8 a.m. and will continue with exciting post-event activities including vendors, games, raffles, food trucks and live music.

STARability Foundation is also excited to announce event co-chairs Jeff and Maureen Maconaghy have pledged $10,000 if STARability Foundation raises $20,000 by Sept. 30. Participants can contribute to the match by becoming a sponsor or underwriter, forming a team, registering individually or making a donation here.

“We are so excited for this year’s race,” said Jeff Maconaghy. “This is a unique opportunity for our community to meet and interact with our STARs at an event that’s fun and exciting for all ages. Each year our goal is to exceed the success of the prior year, and 2023 is no different with our ambitious goal of raising $100,000. We lean on our community, partners and STARability staff to raise this event high on their shoulders and every year, they do. We invite the community to join us and support this incredible organization and its families.”

STARability’s mission is especially important to Inspired Closets owners H.L. and Kerry Burkley because their son, Henry, participates in Jr. Trailblazer Academy, a life skills and vocational training program for high school students.

“We’re proud to be the presenting sponsor of STARability Foundation’s 5K fundraising event this year,” H.L. Burkley said. “Anything we can do to increase awareness of all of the wonderful things the STARability Foundation provides our family and community is close to our hearts.”

Inspired Closets SWFL helps clients throughout Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers and the surrounding communities create the space of their dreams. As a neighbor, friend and small business owner, their collaborative team lives, works and invests in the community and is a valued partner and supporter of STARability’s mission, as well as countless local organizations and initiatives.

Inspired Closets joins several other sponsors and underwriters who have stepped up to support this inclusive family- and pet-friendly event for all ages and abilities. Funds from the race will ensure STARability can preserve and expand its innovative programs and services that shine light on ability, not disability and meet increasing community needs.
