When you participate, lead a team or donate to the Mary Cariola Children’s Center Walking on Sunshine event, you’ll become part of something so much bigger than yourself. Walking on Sunshine is more than a fundraiser—it’s a gathering of exceptional individuals empowering children, youth and young adults.
Every day at Mary Cariola Children's Center is an extraordinary one...
Imagine a young student who, for the first time can speak to his or her parents using advanced technology and visual coordination.
Envision over 600 children and youth with complex disabilities, learning in unique ways that unlock their individual potential.
Take pride in knowing for the first time in New York State, Therapeutic Respite is available for children and youth with development disabilities and behavioral challenges—right here in our community.
Experience a culture, where teachers, teacher aides, social workers, residence managers, habilitation specialists and therapists from speech to vision, work together to inspire and empower individuals and their families to not only reach their life-long achievements but embrace them.
Please join us for the 2017 Walking on Sunshine event on Sunday, September 24th at Veterans Memorial Park in Penfield. Come out for a stroll, support the work being done at Mary Cariola and enjoy family activities, food and fun!
