20th Anniversary Create A Smile Walkathon Raises $34, 724.00

Posted on: June 12th, 2024 by Community Living St. Marys

Community Living St. Marys and Area would like to say thank you to everyone who supported our

20th Anniversary Create A Smile Walkathon!

Your support improves the lives of people with disabilities.

A generous $34,724.00 was raised!!

The walk began with a family who wanted to raise funds for some dental work for their family member with a developmental disability. They continue to play a lead role in the event two decades later and are passionate about supporting other individuals and families. Statistics show that over half of people with a disability live in poverty! Money raised at the walk is used to enhance the lives of citizens with disabilities and their families in our community. It is used to obtain secure housing, pay for needed devices and equipment and to provide summer support for young people. Funds also benefit accessibility projects that increase opportunities for everyone in our community to participate. The most recent example being the new accessible dock at the Milt Dunnell Field.
This event would not be possible without the generosity of the amazing community sponsors, families and friends who donated money, items for the silent auction and their time! The vision of Community Living St. Marys and Area is “A community where everyone belongs” and once again, this walk demonstrates how to make that happen, one smile at a time!

Thank you to all of our Sponsors! (click here for video)
