Summer Road Trip Fundraiser

Join us for a virtual summer road trip! We’re going on an adventure to explore what inclusion means to TASC for those we support with intellectual and developmental disabilities. On this road trip, “stops” will be made to show how TASC individualizes our client’s journey to create their most personally meaningful and successful lives.

It’s easy to follow along on this virtual road trip! Every two weeks we’ll focus on different paths and interests that are important to our clients such as Health & Wellness, Independent Living, Self-Expression, and Career Pathways. Emails will be sent to you to learn more for each section. You can also follow along on social media with the hashtag #AbilitiesAdventure.

The final destination of this summer road trip is the Closing Ceremony where TASC will stream LIVE to celebrate the completion of our road trip with a virtual gala highlighting the stops we took along the way. You don’t want to miss this!
