This fun outdoor event promotes healthy lifestyles to individuals of all ages with and without disabilities. This event has 2 goals to encourage a healthy lifestyle and to encourage people with disabilities to be active community participants by joining the fun of a run.
The Arbor Day Run/Walk/Roll is a partnership with the Gulf Coast Running Club, the most respected running club in South Mississippi. The race includes a 1/2 mile challenge so that everyone, including wheelchairs, can participate in the healthful benefits of a run with awards following.
This year, due to the pandemic, Disability Connection is offering a second option. Schools and groups can register a walk/run/roll event through Disability Connection to be held at the time and location of their convenience such as a football field or walking track. Participants receive an Arbor Day t-shirt, medallion, snacks, and bottled water.
Proceeds support the Disability Connection programs and events. For Sponsorship or Team information contact the Disability Connection office at (228) 604-4020.
