YALLA has become such a big part of my life that I ask for your help so that we can keep creating amazing experiences for our YALLA participants! We are participating in a 5K run to raise funds to keep YALLA going.
YALLA is an organization for young adults with serious physical disabilities and medical conditions. Through our events, weekends, and trips, we provide social experiences and fun opportunities so that our participants can experience the same fun activities as their typical peers, while benefiting from the social support of others who understand their challenges. It is especially important to us that we cater our events with the understanding that our participants are adults, and that we want to make sure each can be as independent as possible. There is nothing to compare to the smiles of someone who accomplishes or experiences something they never thought they would do. Please sponsor me so that we can continue our programs and keep spreading the joy, and in doing so, become part of our family!
Some testimonials from our participants:
"It’s much more than a program. It’s a family. A family who cares and helps each other in need...it’s like I can open up and just be me."
“YALLA is truly an amazing family that you can always count on. They truly know how to make anyone and everyone feel amazing. We are more than just a bunch of friends hanging out.”
