Event Mission

“Celebrating Ability”

The “Run for Independence” is the only race of its kind created to afford people of all abilities an opportunity to participate as ??????????????equals in a professional level athletic event. It promotes an inclusive opportunity to contribute to the community through an offer of time, energy, muscles and money. The event is a collaboration of efforts by many volunteers and organizations raising funds to support Independence Association services and programs, while raising awareness of the rights, needs and abilities of individuals with disabilities.

It is through efforts like our “Run for Independence” that Independence Association has been successful in supporting hundreds of individuals and their families each year. It’s a small step that results in huge rewards, bringing a community together in celebration of ability.
