Thank you for a successful and special day! People of all ages and abilities gathered with us in Verona Park and from their own neighborhoods on Sunday, October 2, 2022, for Kessler Foundation’s best hybrid Stroll ‘N Roll. Together we proved that abilities are what matter.
With the generosity of champions like you, we raised more than $217,000—shattering our goal and making 2022 a record-breaking event! Every dollar raised advances rehabilitation research and employment that helps people with disabilities return to their homes, their communities, and the workplace.
You are vital to our efforts. One hundred percent of your support to Stroll ‘N Roll makes a profound impact. People with paralysis take their first steps. Stroke survivors regain independence. Individuals with multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury improve thinking, learning, and memory. Jobseekers and veterans with disabilities find satisfying employment and become self-sufficient. We could never achieve so much without you.
Save the date and join us at next year’s Stroll ‘N Roll on Sunday, September 24, 2023, from 11 AM to 2 PM in Verona Park and virtually, from your own neighborhoods.
Many thanks to all our participating sponsors for leading the way and changing lives.
Invite Your Network!
Sponsors may use Stroll ‘N Roll as a team building opportunity for employees and their families. We encourage all sponsors to get their organizations involved. Create a company team, fundraise, and stroll or roll with us in Verona Park, if allowed, or virtually, in your neighborhood. One hundred percent of every dollar raised will change the lives of people with disabilities.
