The AbilityFirst Stroll & Roll fundraising event is a fabulous day of fun, exercise, and community involvement that brings people together from all walks of life. We anticipate more than 2,000 people including participants from our programs and their families as well as individuals from dozens of Southern California businesses and community members to join us as we walk through The Los Angeles State Historic Park. Stroll & Roll is AbilityFirst's largest fundraising event! This year, we hope to raise $800,000 to provide programs and services to children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities!
