If you have been holding an event for 42 years and people continue to show up – you must be doing something right.

Community Living, the organization that exists to enrich the quality of life and to promote full and meaningful inclusion in our community of people who have a developmental disability will hold the Walk & Role event on Saturday.

Community Living operates a number of programs including a residential, Employment and Virtual.  They serve those people who need the help – this is an opportunity to help them.

Their Life Share program, also known as host family, is so much more than providing a room in your home. Being a home provider means you’re giving someone with a developmental disability “a place in your heart, a place in your home”.

People who have a developmental disability are active participants in their communities. They are athletes, artists, students, employees, advocates, community volunteers, neighbours and friends. They’re an important part of the community and contribute to the strength of our province.

They don’t draw a crowd but they do create an opportunity for their supporters to meet and enjoy a day with the people they serve.

The event takes place on Saturday – Itinerary:

9:30am – Registration opens
10:30am – Opening remarks and performances
11:00am – 1KM & 2KM walks begin around Spencer Smith Pier
11:30am – BBQ and live entertainment
