Top 10 Reasons to Walk or Run

Top 10 Reasons to Walk or Run

We all want the same things from life; a great job in a great community and plenty of friends with whom we share the experience.  For people with disabilities, these life goals can be challenging.  Via works every day to help people achieve this reality. 

For more than 55 years, the dedicated and committed care providers at Via work to help children overcome developmental delays, help young adults find meaningful and sustainable jobs and provide the resources and opportunities so people with disabilities may lead activity and enjoyable lives right in their own community.  Learn more about Via's programs.

  1. Because it feels good knowing you can make a difference.
