The Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities, a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to helping all people with developmental disabilities and their families, will hold its annual walkathon on Sunday, October 26, at 9 a.m. The walk, held rain or shine, will be at the Englewood Boat Basin recreational area in Englewood.

There will be a special appearance with autographs by Joe Caramagna from Marvel Comics.

J-ADD serves more than 1,000 families in Bergen and Passaic counties. The agency provides respite care to families who have members with developmental disabilities living at home, housing for adults with developmental disabilities, and advocacy, community awareness, and holiday celebrations for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. J-ADD also oversees the Fiddle Foundation Hotline, an online resource that links people on the autism spectrum with needed services nationwide.

All proceeds will help to fund J-ADD’s programs. For information, call (201) 457-0058, ext. 13, or go to www.J-ADD.org.
