For the past five years my wife has been running in the YAI Central Park Challenge (she also works there as a behaviorist). The network works with children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, providing services that many other wont or can't. It's great to see the work they do seeing beyond disabilities and helping these individuals reach for goals many didn't think we're possible. The run was to raise money and awareness for the network. However, all seeing the supporters on the side, it was clear they raises way more than that. I saw many individuals we sometimes considered handicapped pushing themselves to complete the run, with no real sense of competition. They were motivated simply to overcome what many "able" bodied people cannot. It was a beautiful sight. Here are a few photos from the day.
