SATH to hold Walk and Roll-A-Thon


Supplementary Assistance to the Handicapped (SATH) will be holding its 20th-annual Walk and Roll-A-Thon on Saturday, April 9 at the Rocky Fork State Park in Hillsboro.

Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at the Dovetail Activity Area. Walkers, wheelchairs, bikes, roller blades, strollers etc… are invited to come out for the day and help KAMP DOVETAIL with their pledges and support. Prizes will be given to the top five individuals who collect the most pledges. Door prizes and refreshments will also be provided.

This event is being held to promote and support KAMP DOVETAIL, a five-day and four-night summer camp for children with special needs. The KAMP is held the third week of June at Rocky Fork State Park.

Last year over 750 individuals, which included children with special needs, volunteer and staff members, enjoyed a fun filled week of outdoor camping experiences. Supplementary Assistance to the Handicapped underwrites the cost of KAMP DOVETAIL through generous donations obtained by fundraising events such as the Walk and Roll-A-Thon.

For more information to walk or sponsor an individual call Linda Allen, SATH Executive Director at (937) 366-6657. Pledges sheets can be obtained by going to their website at or .org.
