3K Fun Run, Walk & Roll
Saturday from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM EDT
Join us and participate in this one-of-a-kind virtual event! The STARability Foundation 3K Fun Run, Walk & Roll is an annual fundraiser that provides exposure to diverse members of our community and raises awareness about STARability, our programs and services. You can run, walk, roll or cheer virtually in support of the nearly 300 STARs STARability serves each year! *Must register by Sept. 29 to receive a t-shirt.
The STARability Foundation's mission is to transform the lives of individuals with disabilities through social, vocational and educational connections to the community, while strengthening awareness and respect for individuals with abilities.
STARability fills a services void that exists for 300 individuals in Collier County by opening a world of possibilities to them. We advocate for inclusion through employment and community-based programs, provide life-long learning opportunities, offer social experiences and connect STARability participants, their families and caregivers with resources and support.
The structure, consistency and community that our programs offer our STARs paused on March 16 when we suspended in-person programs because of the COVID-19 outbreak. We were quickly able to tailor our face-to-face programs to virtual platforms, engaging participants in over 1,800 virtual experiences in April alone. In July, we resumed many in-person programs on a smaller scale to ensure everyone's safety, and we continue offering virtual programs.
Our STARs continue to shine a light on their ability, not their disability, by learning and engaging with their community--despite COVID-19.
Your support is vital because it means that our STARs can continue participating in innovative virtual classes and activities now during these difficult times and when our programs resume in-person on a larger scale.
