Our country is in pain. The deaths of so many…George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others are sad reminders of the racial injustice that is so common in our communities and, perhaps, experienced by some in the Indian Creek family. At Indian Creek we celebrate our diversity and the Leadership Team wants you to know that we stand with those who are fighting for justice and equality.
It is the responsibility of all of us to fight against systems of oppression. The unity of our nation depends on everyone being treated equally under the law. The Leadership Team is committed to recognize and resolve inequalities within our organization and the communities in which we serve.
We stand in solidarity with our black community in the fight for justice and equality.
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the 29th Annual Roll Stroll & Run to Saturday, September 12th, 2020. It is our hope that we will be able to offer a fun, safe event for all of our participants, staff, consumers, and families by that time.
Indian Creek Foundation’s 29th annual Roll, Stroll & Run will take place on Saturday, September 12th, in Souderton. This charity ride/walk/race typically draws nearly 300 participants and volunteers from all over Southeastern PA and NJ. With scenic and challenging courses of 62, 40, 20 and 10 miles, this event has something for cyclists of all skill levels. There are also 5k and 1k courses for walkers! This year’s 5K race will feature prizes in several age groups, ranging from youth through seniors! Afterwards, participants can enjoy an all-you-can-eat picnic buffet, live music, games, tours of our campus, and many other fun activities. This event is sure to be fun for the entire family.
In addition to being one of the biggest community events of the year, it is also Indian Creek Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. Indian Creek Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides services for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to make necessary renovations in several of our 24 residential care homes. After registering, you will have the opportunity to create your own fundraising page to encourage your friends help us reach our goal of a new kitchen.
By participating in Roll Stroll & Run, and by encouraging others to sponsor your efforts, you are making a difference in the lives of the individuals that Indian Creek Serves.
