AOH Yonkers Supports The 3rd Annual Chilly Hilly 5k Run/Walk

And They're Off!  Over 500 runners take part in Chilly Hilly 5k Run



     The North Yonkers Scholarship Foundation held its 3rd Annual Chilly Hilly 5k Run/Walk this past weekend, and The AOH Yonkers Division #1 was once again proud to help sponsor the event!  Over 500 runners enjoyed a beautiful sunny day all while helping to raise money for a very worthy cause.

     This year, the event was to help support The Special Program and Resource Connection of Yonkers (SPARC).   SPARC enhances the lives of people with developmental disabilities through high quality therapeutic recreation activities. Participants work on skill development in a nurturing social community that does not otherwise exist in their lives.  SPARC provides active, challenging, and interesting recreation for people with special needs, as well as respite for their families. The SPARC specialists use enjoyable, goal-oriented activities as steps towards overcoming obstacles and developing behavioral, functional and life skill goals.
