Why We Walk:
We walk to support an agency who supports us. Parenting a child with complex needs can be challenging, overwhelming & exhausting. Mary Cariola is our back-up support system. Cariola's medical respite program provides us with a periodic break from our daughter’s care. We have peace of mind, knowing our daughter is enjoying time with her peers in a supportive setting, with staff who are like an extended family to us. Please support Mary Cariola Walking on Sunshine to support the agency who supports us, and families like ours.
Celebrating their 70th Anniversary, Mary Cariola Children’s Center is an independent not-for profit agency dedicated to evidence-based education and life skill solutions for individuals with multiple complex disabilities. Serving nearly 500 individuals and their families in preschool, school age and residential programs, the staff uses innovative technology to unlock life-long potential.
