It is consistently my great pleasure to work on the 5K Walk*Run*Roll with TRPIL and on the Capital Campaign committee. My sister has a disability and that is why am so passionate about TRPIL and the work it does! I have met many of TRPIL’s staff, who have disabilities, and appreciate their dedication to their work.
