Students in the art department at Glen Cove Middle School have entered the 2013 AHRC T-Shirt Design Contest to benefit the 2013 AHRC Walkathon. The contest officially began April 9 and will conclude on May 10. The student with the winning design will be awarded a cash prize of $500 as well as $500 for their school’s art program. The winning design will debut as the official t-shirt at the 2013 AHRC Walkathon on Sunday, November 3.
The AHRC Foundation supports programs that help children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to get the best possible opportunity to learn, grow and succeed. The Foundation seeks to provide support that ensures that, regardless of budget cuts and changes in the political and economic climate, compassionate, community-based programs for people with developmental disabilities will continue now and for future generations.
“The walk brings together Long Island children, adults and families who are impacted by a developmental disability. We are thrilled to have these young artists embrace our community in this highly visible, fun way,” shared Mary
McNamara, foundation director for AHRC Foundation. “Our hope is that this is just the first introduction of community service to support the developmentally disabled.”
