The Essex County Accessibility Advisory Committee is holding the second annual Celebrate Our Abilities Accessibility Awareness Walk this Saturday at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex in LaSalle.

“We all have unique abilities and this walk is an opportunity for us to come together and celebrate that individuality while advocating for improved accessibility for everyone,” said Christine Easterbrook, Chair of the ECAAC.

“We have made tremendous progress when it comes to removing barriers in this community, but there is still much work to do to make it accessible and inclusive for everyone regardless of their abilities.”

The walk is meant to bring communities together to celebrate all abilities and to raise awareness in support of the disability community. Dozens attended last year’s inaugural walk and organizers are hoping for an even bigger turnout this year.

It runs from 11am to 1pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
