More than just a Donation

“Our mission is to promote an enhanced quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities.”
J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center

In 2012, we were introduced to our Non-Profit Mud Partners, J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center via Pathways Strategic Teaching Center. We have continued to build our partnership each year. It goes beyond a simple donation after the conclusion of the event. I, personally, have been to Pathways and to the Trudeau Center workplace. I have met the individuals that these funds support. BoldrDash holds an event at Olympic Town at Special Olympics in the summer and we get to see some of those same faces as we guide them through our course. This year our partnership blossomed again. When you pick up your racer packet, please remember a Trudeau Center Consumer was employed to pack it. When you take that BoldrDash T-shirt, know that it was a Trudeau Center Consumer employee who counted, folded and prepared them for you to pick up.  At the end of your run when that medal is placed around your neck – again, it was a Trudeau Center Consumer that helped get that medal to the event and prepped it to be placed around your neck. This is something that as President and owner of BoldrDash I could not be more proud of.  We do not simply hand over a donation at the conclusion of our events.  We contribute to the mission of our Non-Profit partners.

On event day when you look out on the course and throughout the registration, bag check, parking areas etc. many of the faces you will see are folks that work with the these consumers every day.  You will also see some of the Trudeau Consumers helping on Event Day.  On September 13 and 14 2014  you are more than just a runner; you are a supporter.

    I’m participating in my first BoldrDash this year with Body Complete Fitness – and this is a very special part of it. My daughter attended the Trudeau Center many years ago. She was also a special olympian and participated in many bowling tournaments. My husband has been the organizer for the Providence Police participation in the annual torch run, even since our daughter passed away 7 years ago. All truly special organizations and I’m very proud to be a part of it this year!

      Joyce, I do hope that you enjoyed your first experience at BoldrDash. I am so sorry to hear of your daughter’s passing. While it was many years ago I can only imagine the pain and loss you must still feel today. We did have consumers from Trudeau out on the course this year as volunteers as well as running the course itself. We were even lucky enough to have some great volunteers that made it possible for one Trudeau consumer to take on parts of the course in her wheelchair. I do hope to see you again at our future events and congratulations on being on Sunday’s Biggest Team – Body Complete Fitness.
