Participants at Stroll n Roll

Abilities Are What Matter

Stroll 'N Roll, our annual family-fun event, brings together people of all ages and abilities to change the lives of people with disabilities. In 2019, on September 22, we celebrated all abilities and raised over $200,000 for rehabilitation research and disability employment initiatives. We enjoyed food trucks, games, prizes, crafts, music, magic and more, plus a scenic stroll or roll around Verona Lake. Join us this year on Sunday, September 27, 2020 in Verona Park.

Registration Link Coming Soon.
