Event to help youths with disabilities scheduled

Part of the aim is to raise awareness

WEST HAVEN — The Center for Disability Rights, 764-A Campbell Ave., 1½-mile wheel-athon to benefit youth with disabilities will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 25, at the Savin Rock Conference Center, 5 Rock St.

The event raises awareness of the barriers faced by people with disabilities as they live, work and play while raising funds for programs for youths.

CDR’s serves youths from Milford to Old Saybrook and Old Lyme; up to Middletown and Portland, and down through Meriden to the lower Naugatuck Valley.

Last year, individuals and members of 16 teams raised $11,485 for CDR’s scholarship program. Each year, money raised goes toward college scholarships for students with disabilities; advocacy with students to improve their education; facilitation services for youth groups; and CDR youth transition services.

CDR is looking for participants and sponsors. For information, call Jill at 203-934-7077, ext. 17, or visit
