Intrepid was a proud sponsor of AbilityFirst’s Stroll & Roll fundraising event that was presented by Comerica Bank on Sunday, April 2. Close to 2,000 participated in the walk that was held at the Universal Studios backlot to help raise awareness for programs and services that help children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities.
The Universal Studios Backlot was hosted by NBC4 “Today in LA” anchor Whit Johnson and meteorologist Shanna Mendiola. Other celebrities who shared their time and helped raised funds included Jaclyn Smith of Charlie’s Angels, Jane Kaczmarek of Malcolm in the Middle, and Lauren Potter of Glee.
Families and individuals from dozens of Southern California businesses joined together to raise more than $585,000.
AbilityFirst provides a variety of programs designed to help an individual successfully transition from childhood to adult life; providing employment preparation, training, and experience; building social connections and independence; and, offering both participants and their caregivers an opportunity to refresh and recharge through recreational activities.
