Thanks to the participation and support of more than 300 runners, walkers, sponsors, and donors, the 22nd Annual (and first-ever virtual) Building Tomorrows Run and Walk raised nearly $43,000 which will directly benefit children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families served by The Arc of Essex County.
Proceeds from the event will enable The Arc to remain agile, responsive, and innovative. If you or your friends and family didn't have the chance to contribute prior to the event, fundraising pages will remain active for a few more weeks.
Pictures from the 2020 Building Tomorrows Run and Walk, including the winners of our photo contest, are now posted on The Arc’s Facebook page. Winners include:
