ADAPT Fun Run April 26 celebrates 10th anniversary of Olmstead decision


FUN*RUN for Disability Rights 2009 is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Olmstead decision.

On Sunday, April 26 The ADAPT Community will be having a FUN* RUN for Disability Rights 2009 at Upper Senate Park in Washington, DC.

The FUN*RUN is a fundraising event to support disability rights where sponsored people will run, walk, jog or roll around Upper Senate Park for one hour.

2009 marks the 10th anniversary of the landmark US Supreme Court’s Olmstead decision. This decision has resulted in hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities and older Americans getting and keeping out of nursing homes and other institutions.

The 2009 FUN*RUN for Disability Rights is a celebration of this 10th anniversary
and a commitment to the principle of “most integrated setting”, a principle at the foundation of The ADAPT Community’s advocacy.

Please join us as a “FUN*RUNNER”, “CHAMPION” or as a disability rights activist. Together we can make a difference.
