Walking on Sunshine 2018


It was another sun soaked September Sunday as 900 walkers and volunteers raised $165,000.00 at our largest fundraiser—Walking on Sunshine!

Veterans Memorial Park in Penfield was cast in an orange glow on September 23 as 85 teams representing Mary Cariola families, employees, alumni, community supporters and school groups came together to generate Agency awareness and celebrate the good work that happens every day in our school and residential programs.

Attendees enjoyed a variety of family friendly activities including team photos, a raffle, the Gamin’ Ride video truck, face painting, a bubble station, first responder vehicles along with breakfast snacks and a celebration lunch.

Funds raised will support programs Agency wide which include the purchase of specialized adaptive equipment; provide individualized support for our residents to actively experience our community; support our music therapy program and provide a social worker for every student and family.

Many thanks go to our major sponsors of the event- Comprehensive Dermatology of Rochester, Smola Consulting, Rochester Clinical Research, QCI Asset Management and WROC-News 8.
