800+ fund raising walkers, runners, and rollers
100+ volunteers

For 2022, all contributions for PRI will be used to support our year-long campaign, My Voice! My Choice! to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to thrive in an inclusive community where their voices matter, and choices are abundant.

Dollars raised during 2022 Made in the Shade will directly impact individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by:

  • Removing barriers to community-based experiences, including reliable and safe transportation, so clients can access social, civic and health inclusion.
  • Getting clients back to work in the community so they experience the satisfaction of earning a paycheck and enjoying being part of a team.
  • Recruiting, retaining, and training employees, essential to the support of individuals with disabilities.
