Join us on Sunday, April 24th beginning at 10:00am at Cove Island Park as we walk together for the first time since 2019!  We are planning for a fun filled day including the HaHa Clowns, lawn games, refreshments and much more while supporting the over 100 people receiving services at ARI. 

This year we are honoring two very special people in the ARI family.  We will honor the memory of Gail Malloy.  Gail was a staple in the Stamford community.  She served on the board of directors during the 2000s and 2010s.  Gail was a fixture at our Walk for many years and advocated strongly for ARI and services for people with developmental disabilities.  We will also honor Bob Bryson.  Bob (and his late wife Betty) has been involved with ARI for nearly 70 years!  Bob's son Matthew attended the ARI nursery school and received ARI services.  Bob served on the board of directors during the 1960s and 1970s, was a recreation volunteer, coached the Special Olympics and chaperoned many vacations for those at ARI.  

There is no cost to register; however, we ask that you raise/donate at least $50 in order to receive a tee shirt.  Sponsorship opportunities are available beginning at the Team level at $150.  All information is available by clicking below or visiting
