Wheel-A-Thon participants can walk, roll in a wheelchair or ride a bicycle along a 1-mile route. You can register and participate as an individual or you can form a team with your family, friends and co-workers. To register to participate, visit the “Participate” page.
The money raised during the 2017 Wheel-A-Thon provided Summer Empowerment Camp opportunities to nine high school juniors and seniors and provided five Wheel-A-Thon Scholarships.
Individuals who are not part of a team but who raise at least $25 for young people with disabilities can participate in the CDR Wheel-A-Thon as individuals.
The top 2017 fund raising teams were:
1) Meredith’s Minions
2) Sandy’s Steam Rollers; and
3) Team Sundwall
The winner of the Team Spirit Award was West Haven Community House.
We will have more information on this year’s results soon, so stay tuned.
Other major supporters last year included West Haven Community House.
