Walking For Those Who Can't

Walking For Those Who Can't

Posted: Updated:

A local disability health awareness walk doubled in participant size this year.

The second annual Talk, Walk, and Roll

event promotes community inclusion, health, wellness and disability awareness.

North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities, located on Minot State University's campus started Talk, Walk and Roll last year to meet new people in a healthy environment.

Around the perimeter, organizations like NDCPD and Annie's House promoted programs with a similar community inclusion mission.

Coordinator Chad Fenner says it's a healthy event for people of all abilities.

(Lenny, NDCPD Talk Walk Roll Participant) "It's fun, isn't it? And I'm helping out this year."

(Chad Fenner, NDCPD Talk Walk Roll Coordinator) "Lenny is helping out this year, he's helping me emcee. There's not a lot of activities that they get to get involved in that are community driven, and this gives everyone an opportunity to do something healthy and meet one another and come together as a group."

October is National Disability Awareness month.
