AHRC Foundation Walk 2023: A Success Thanks to Your Support

We are thrilled to announce the wonderful success of the annual AHRC Foundation Walk, which took place on Sunday, October 29th. With the incredible support of over 900 participants, and over 2000 donors, the event strengthened our collective commitment to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We thank all those joined us and contributed to our fundraising efforts.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the 114 teams that were formed, their dedicated captains, our tireless volunteers, and the generous sponsors who supported the event. Thanks to your collective efforts, we surpassed our fundraising goal by raising over $110,000, and the final total is still being calculated.

These funds will be directed back into services and support systems that directly impact children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This financial support will provide essential resources and opportunities, ultimately contributing to happier and well-lived lives for those in our community.

Once again, thank you for your outstanding dedication and support, making the AHRC Foundation Walk 2023 a resounding success. A very special thanks to our 2023 TOP Teams and TOP Fundraisers!

We look forward to continuing our mission to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities in the years to come.
