Boonslick People First will be hosting a walk-a-thon
Boonville — Boonslick People First will be hosting a Walk-a-Thon on September 10 at 4 p.m. to raise money for the local People First chapter.
People First is a self-advocacy organization formed by, run by, and exists for people with disabilities. The donations will help local members attend conferences around Missouri, learning how to advocate for themselves and giving each member the opportunity to belong to a social organization. Each member who has collected donations will be walking one lap for each $5 donation.
Sisters Supportive Living located at 520 Ryan Street will be assisting with the organization and set up in making the first annual Walk-A-Thon a success. Members of the Boonslick People first have decided to walk in honor of Judith L. Brown who had been a long time member of the organization, and recently passed away unexpectedly at her home on Friday Aug 30.
