Harc’s 18th annual Walk N’ Roll drew hundreds of supporters to raise money for its many programs on May 7. The much-loved annual event was held at Dunkin Donuts Park in partnership with the Hartford Yard Goats. Harc raised close to $37,000 at the event. Proceeds from the event go toward programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“This year’s walk was incredibly powerful. After all that we’ve been through in the past two years, it was amazing to have everyone come together and show support,” said Greg Calnen, Harc Board Chairman. “This event has been a pillar event for Harc bringing the community together to raise awareness for everything Harc has done over the past 71 years.”
Fox 61 personality, Keith McGilvery, was Master of Ceremonies. His gift for positivity kept the crowd engaged and excited to be at the event. Yard Goats mascot, Chompers, was also on hand along with the baby goats, games, a raffle, and more. The Walk N’ Roll is organized with people of all abilities in mind.
“We are so grateful for our partnership with the Hartford Yard Goats and for all our supporters,” said Moriah Corry, Philanthropy Officer, Events & Marketing at Harc. “This event brings people together of all abilities and is a great opportunity to bring awareness of people with intellectual and related disabilities to the broader community.”
