Run, Walk, or Roll 2019 for Ability 1st Utah

 

This year we commemorate our 5k Run, Walk, or Roll fundraiser event, for the 17th consecutive year. Our fundraiser took place on September 7, 2019. The disability friendly race allowed participants to able to Run it, Walk it, or Roll it. It was a great day and the weather was beautiful.¬† A year of arduous effort, planning and preparation went to achieving the goal of making this event a success, and we did it. Every year we organize this fundraiser event to support the Ability 1st Utah Youth and Community Integration programs. With the participation of our runners, sponsors and volunteers we managed to surpass last year’s earnings. Many people and organizations supported our cause this year, THANK YOU!

Ability 1st Utah has been serving a very special population of people with disabilities, for 18 years. Our sole focus is to help each of our consumers achieve their goals and facilitate the path to their independence and contribute to their self-sufficiency. Through our Youth Program and our Community Integration Program we offer our consumers the opportunity to participate in classes and activities designed to build a sense of independence and self-reliance.  With your participation and contribution you were able to make a difference in the lives of our consumers by being part of our Run, Walk, or Roll.

Due to construction on part of the trail we were unable to offer the 10k but we hope that next year we will have the 10k again. Thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors all participants were able to go home with a price.

Our goal each year is to increase the participation of our Run, Walk, or Roll. Help Ability 1st Utah to continue serving people with disabilities and participate next year in our Run, Walk, or Roll race. Thanks for making a difference in the lives of our consumers.
