Walk in the Park for Abilis on Sunday

The Greenwich community is once again poised to take a walk to support Abilis.

The seventh annual Walk in the Park for Abilis, which is the organization’s biggest community event of the year is set for Sunday, Oct. 21, at Greenwich Point Park. The event raises funds for the nonprofit that serves people of all ages in Greenwich and Stamford with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities.

Registration and kid-friendly activities begin at 10:30 a.m. and a one-mile walk, roll or stroll begins at noon.

Greenwich children’s author Afton Fraser, who wrote Point to Happy, will be the honorary chairwoman and Stamford journalist Hallie Levine Sklar is chairwoman.

Each walker who raises $50 or more will receive an Abilis T-shirt. The proceeds support Abilis’ home-based programs for babies and children with delays in their development as well as Abilis’ residential and employment programs for adults.

Attractions for the whole family include a bounce castle, costumed characters, face painting and crafts for children, a DJ and walk-fueling, healthy snacks for all. Additional food and beverages will be available for purchase. All-natural soaps and bath salts, candles, dog treats, beaded jewelry, tie-dyed products and other gift-items hand made by adults who are supported by Abilis also will be on sale.

Registration for the walk is available online through abilis.us/walk or by calling 203-531-1880, ext. 161.
