Tomorrow, April 11th, is the 31st Annual Run/Walk for Someone Special event in Sykesville, PA.. The event is the biggest fundraiser for The Arc of Jefferson County and Camp Friendship.. The Arc normally uses the money raised to put on TWO camps for children with Special Needs who live in the Jefferson County and DuBois areas. However, this year.. The grant that they normally got to put on an Autism Camp in the month of August was not received this year so the Run/Walk Event needs to raise enough funds to put on THREE camps this year. It can be done.. God has been so good to us here at The Arc of Jefferson County.
I will be running the 2 mile fun run, while the rest of my family walks the 2 miles.. We are raising funds and hoping maybe someone reading this might help.
Our fund raising page is http://www.firstgiving.com/thearcofjeffersoncounty. Any donation amount is welcomed and appreciated. If you have any questions about the event or The Arc of Jefferson County you can visit our website at www.jcarc.org.
I have been the Executive Director of this organization for 13 months now and its been an amazing journey and I look forward to seeing where the rest of this year takes us all.
