Vecova’s 4th Annual Strength in Abilities Run

Over 120 participants took to the start lines for the 2K, 5K and 10K races at Vecova’s fourth annual Strength in Abilities Run on Sunday, June 23. The weather was less than ideal but you all showed up with your umbrellas and rain ponchos ready to cross the finish line in support of persons with disabilities. We want to thank you all for your support, enthusiasm and energy at the race. The pouring rain and a poorly timed train caused a few delays and setbacks, so we appreciate your patience and understanding.

We would like to thank all our participants and volunteers for their help at this event, which supports Vecova’s programs and services for persons with disabilities. We had a number of staff, board members and clients who also participated and volunteered their time to help us make this event another success, and we truly appreciate all of their help.

With this run, we were able to recognize the strength individuals have to embrace their abilities. It is because of the support of our sponsors and donors that we are able to provide this inclusive event for persons of all abilities. We are so grateful to everyone involved, whether you were in the race, supported a friend or made a contribution.

Thank you again for all of your help and support!
