Community Outreach Committee
September’s Third Annual Inspiration Walk, or I-Walk as we have come to know it, the Bar Association’s cornerstone event in its partnership with the Special Olympics, was a huge success! The 2K Walk/5K Run saw more than 350 participants, volunteers, family and fans—many of whom were our Bar Association members along with their co-workers, friends and family! The event raised over $20,000 for the Montgomery County Chapter of the Special Olympics!!! Many thanks to each of you who contributed to and/or participated in this worthwhile cause. The funds will be used to provide year-round sports and leadership programs through the Special Olympics for Montgomery County children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. There are more opportunities to volunteer with the Special Olympics throughout the year – so stay tuned! We are already looking forward to next year’s Inspiration Walk, or “I-Walk 2015”!
We also want to thank everyone for donating their new or gently used children sized Halloween costumes for our costume drive! It was a great success thanks to the unending generosity of our wonderful bar!
