The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2018

It’s been said that after a good walk a person has new hope and can see fresh possibilities. At Mary Cariola Children’s Center we couldn’t agree more which is why our largest and most exciting fundraiser is in fact, a walk!

 

When you participate, lead a team or donate to the Mary Cariola Children’s Center Walking on Sunshine event, you become part of something so much bigger than yourself. You become part of the Cariola Community—a group of exceptional individuals empowering children, youth and young adults.

 

Each day at Mary Cariola Children’s Center, over 450 kids come to school to learn, to sing, to take big steps forward in accomplishing goals that were once considered impossible.  In our 6 houses nearly 50 young people diligently work on life skills to increase their independence.  In our school and in our residences, these things happen every day because of a staff dedicated to innovation and caring. They happen because of YOU!

 

Your participation in Walking on Sunshine allows us to continue to create a culture, where teachers, teacher aides, social workers, residence managers, habilitation specialists and therapists from speech to vision, work together to inspire and empower individuals and their families to not only reach their life-long achievements but embrace them.

 

Please join us for the 2018 Walking on Sunshine event on Sunday, September 23rd at Veterans Memorial Park in Penfield. Come out for a stroll, support the work being done at Mary Cariola and provide new hope and limitless possibilities.
