  • 11 people are interested

Join our schools for children with disabilities in our "Wheelin'-n'-Walkin' Challenge" to raise funds for special programming and equipment. Staff members developed the concept of the Wheelin'-n'-Walkin' Challenge as a way for staff, students and their families to help raise funds for their school.

Student sponsors are invited to choose a student to support from a selection of profiles. The student sponsor donates or fundraises a minimum of $200, and on the day of the event, assists the student to do one lap around the designated walking course. Those with wheelchairs, walkers and gait trainers may also be assisted by family members and staff.

This event takes place on May 24 (elementary school) and May 31 (high school). In the case of rain, the event will take place indoors.
