Dear Friend of Disability Rights:

I need your help! I have volunteered to join in the ADAPT FUN*RUN for Disability Rights which supports Tucson’s DIRECT Center for Independence and national efforts to make community living a reality for everyone.

I will walk a route in Reid Park, Tucson on 06/10/2017 until I complete 25 or so laps.I would appreciate your support as a sponsor. Please select the sponsor button above and make a generous flat donation or pledge for each lap. Remember, your donation is tax deductible!

Then you can SHARE via social media, email, etc. Get as many donations as possible

If you have any problems getting set up, please contact: 

Toni Saia 
(520) 624 – 6452 x111

Let’s raise some advocacy dollars!!
