To come together, raise awareness, celebrate inclusion, and raise critical funding to support The Arc of Monmouth's programs and services for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Instead of joining together on the boardwalk, each person/family will wear their t-shirt and walk in their own neighborhood, trail, or even on a treadmill on September 12, 2020.
