Hello Everyone! I am pleased to have selected the New Horizons organization to maximize my efforts and fitness pursuits along with helping to support others. On October 13 over 10,000 runners will participate in an exciting 26.2 mile run.

We are a private, nonprofit 501(c) 3, incorporated in 1955, operating in both Canton and Unionville, CT. More importantly, we are a community of adults with physical disabilities, who with the help of friends and supporters, created an accessible living option with support services. We are also a nonprofit nursing home offering a continuum of inpatient services, as well as, outpatient rehabilitation. We have provided services to people and their families throughout the state and reaching into out of state communities. We are a unique living option for adults with disabilities and we need the help of all our community members to remain a viable service provider.
We are participating in the ING Hartford Marathon and Half Marathon so that more of you get to know us, to be active in community events, and because it is a fun, healthy way to raise funds.
Why run and fundraise with us? Because Team New Horizons is fortunate to be sponsored by Tyler English Fitness Systems, Connecticut's Leading Personal Training and Youth Fitness Facility in Canton, CT. http://bit.ly/LzL3NX to offer 2 complimentary weekly bootcamp sessions for the 12 weeks leading up to the race, Nutritional advice from Davia H. Shepherd M.S. D.C. Chiropractor, Clinical Nutritionist http://bit.ly/KyvS7l, and donated race day t-shirts and 10% discount on sneakers from New Balance of Avon and South Windsor http://bit.ly/K5ayqQ
Funds raised from this event will help us to purchase a very greatly needed negative pressure wound therapy device. A large number of our residents would benefit from our owning this device and would rapidly increase healing.
