Quotes and Comments.
“Many physical activity-based events within the communities are designed in a way that people with disabilities may not be able to participate. We’re hoping that people of all abilities will come out and run, walk, or roll with us and have a great time.” –Dr. Lesley Cottrell, CED Director.
“The WVUCED is growing and with help from fundraising from this event and others, we will be further expanding services for individuals with disabilities and their families in West Virginia. We’re excited to begin offering a variety of programs, workshops, and services, incorporate technology that will allow us to reach individuals and their families across long distances, and develop a larger team of future providers for the state.” –Dr. Lesley Cottrell, CED Director.
