Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida

Walk for a good cause at the 2019 Michigan Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, June 1, at Independence Oaks County Park, 9501 Sashabaw Road.
“This event is vital to help families with special assistance grants and expanding awareness and research,” said Kevin Bellant, general manager at Michigan Mobility Solutions of Clarkston, event sponsor. “We participated last year and it was just fantastic. It was a great day for kids and their families to enjoy a great day at the park, with great activities and music, food, and games. Also, many vendors are there to share info on how they can help the families.”
Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida is a family friendly, non-competitive one mile walk featuring an Interactive Festival, and Adaptive Health Fair raising awareness about Spina Bifida and celebrating the accomplishments of the approximately 166,000 Americans living with the challenges it brings.
“Michigan Mobility Solutions is a sponsor for the event for many reasons. First, it’s a great way to give back and support such a great cause, right in our own backyard in Clarkston,” Bellant said. “Also, it helps families with support to local programs and services, and it really helps people know about our great vehicles to help them with their mobility needs.”
Event proceeds support local community programs and services for all individuals affected by Spina Bifida, as well as national research, advocacy, education, and support initiatives.
Park entry fee is $5. Participants can cover it, or mention they’re attending Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida and the event will be charged instead. Follow the Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida signs to the Twin Chimney shelter.
Last year, the event raised $40,000 with 350 people attending. Check-in is from 9-10 a.m. Registration cutoff is 12 p.m. on May 31. For more information, contact Kristi Wass at 202-618-4752 or kwass@sbaa.org.
