First off, thank you for taking the time to click into my fundraising page.
A little about me, I have been a Job Coach at AbilityFirst's Supported Employment Program for about a year and a half now. I essentially provide training and guidance to people with disabilities with the goal of helping them to obtain and retain jobs in community work settings. Although the job comes with its fair share of challenges, it is also an incredibly rewarding. I think it's amazing to see the journey that all my clients go through as they continue to work at their jobs. They are extremely hardworking and just like everyone else, they want to have a job that they enjoy, make friends, and feel included. It's been an honor helping my clients with their journey and seeing them succeed in doing things that they didn't even think they could do in the first place. As a matter of fact, many of our clients have continued to work during this pandemic at grocery stores, restaurants, etc. They truly are our heroes.
Funds raised for Stroll and Roll will help AbilityFirst's programs such as Supported Employment to continue and thrive. Most of the programs has quickly transitioned to remote support due to Covid-19. Not only are these virtual programs FUN for our participants, they help them to overcome some of the isolation and feelings of anxiety that can result from the disruption of their daily routines.
Now, more than ever, our participants need AbilityFirst. Please help me support AbilityFirst by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance AbilityFirst's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too. Together, we can make a difference and make miracles happen.

ALSO! My super awesome lovely supervisor Kimy has been making masks during this time. She will donate 10% of proceeds to Stroll and Roll when you mention 'Stroll and Roll' in your order. Please check out her shop on Etsy at etsy.com/shop/ohbebebykimi
If you have made it this far, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to do so. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like additional information. Once again, I appreciate you and please stay safe and healthy during this time.
Sending positive vibes and support your way,
