The Jewish Association for Developmental Disabilities, a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities and their families, will hold its annual walkathon on Sunday, October 27. Registration is at 10 a.m.; the walk is at 11. It will be held on a flat course, rain or shine, at Van Saun Park, Pavilion C, 216 Forest Ave., Paramus. There also will be a carnival, music, food, and fun.
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 fund J-ADD’s programs. For information, call Erica Silverman at (201) 457-0058, ext. 2002, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to J-ADD.org.
