This weekend, one Coast organization is asking Coast residents to come out and hit the ground running or rolling.
Disability Connection will be holding their 28th annual Arbor Day 5K on Saturday at the Biloxi Town Green. Runners can come out and compete in the 5K for a small fee or those with disabilities can enjoy the one mile or fourth of a mile walk or roll for free. After the run, everyone is welcome to play wheelchair basketball and soccer. Extra wheelchairs will be available so anyone can see what it’s like.
Disability Connection’s goal is to be a Coast resource to children, veterans or anyone with a disability. Janie O’Keefe with Disability Connection said, “Now, when people have questions about school, about employment, about the building and accessibility of the building or housing programs. Whatever it is, they can just come and talk to me. We just try to help people to get involved and have the same quality of life that every one of us wants. We just want to make life a little bit easier for this population. We want to be there to help them.”
