April 22, 2012 Fun*Run: Support the NAD and ADAPT!

ADAPT has honored Howard A. Rosenblum the CEO of the National Association of the Deaf by asking him to be their National “Fun Runner” along with their Celebrity Fun Runner, Noah Wyle, the actor renowned for his role on the television show, “ER” and starring in a new show “Falling Skies.”

The Fun*Run is an event where sponsored people will run, walk, jog and/or roll around Upper Senate Park in Washington, DC to raise funds supporting the rights of deaf and hard of hearing people and people with disabilities. This year, the theme is “My Medicaid Matters” and is dedicated to protecting Medicaid services from budget cuts or other detrimental changes. Sign up to sponsor Howard’s run on April 22nd. The proceeds from his sponsorship will be split between ADAPT and the NAD. Sponsoring is easy, go to this web page and choose your level of sponsorship:

ADAPT is a national grass-roots community that organizes disability rights activists to engage in nonviolent direct action, including civil disobedience, to assure the civil and human rights of people with disabilities to live in freedom.
