The 2014 Wheel-A-Thon to benefit youth with disabilities took place from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014, in West Haven.
Last year Wheel-A-Thon participants and sponsors raised about more than $13,000 that went toward four scholarships for students with disabilities and to provide staff and supports for the participants in our Shoreline/EstuaryYouth Transition Project (SEYTP).
Currently, there are 10 young adults participating in SEYTP and the Greater New Haven YTP. They are learning to self-advocate and achieve their individual goals. Also, with your support, we have opened a satellite office in Clinton, Conn!
Like in 2013, CDR supporter Robert “RJ” Allen was the top individual fundraiser. In 2014 raising nearly $1,100 for the Center for Disability Rights himself!
Individuals who were not part of a team but who raised at least $25 for young people with disabilities participated on the CDR Wheel-A-Thon team “Pogi’s Posse.”
The top 2013 fundrasing teams were:
1) Team Karshutay
2) Sandy’s Steamrollers; and
3) — was a Tie between Pogi’s Possi and Heather’s Happy Hens
The Team Spirit Award was also won by Sandy’s Steamrollers.
