1 in 5 Americans have some type of disability. Over 17,000 people in Illinois are on a waiting list for services. Disability does not discriminate.
Advocates for Access has helped many people with disabilities throughout central Illinois gain greater independence and you can help by donating to Advocates for Access.
Wheel-A-Thon raises accessibility awareness to community individuals by participating in a planned route with real-life obstacles. Individuals within teams will complete the course in a wheelchair. Wheel-A-Thon particpants will be adding to positive change.
We are seeking teams of individuals to participate, as well as corporate sponsors to help us make the event a reality. Gather up your office co-workers, friends, or family to help raise disability awareness in our community.
This year's event will take place on April 12, 2019 at 11:15 AM at the Peoria County Courthouse. Cost is $20 per person to participate.
