Actresses Jane Kaczmarek and Jaclyn Smith want you to join them on this year’s 5K Derby Day Run/Walk for AbilityFirst.

Last year, thanks to numerous supports, AbilityFirst was able to reach their goal of raising $418,000 to support children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities. This year, they are aiming even higher and need your help.

The Derby Day 5K, presented by Comerica Bank, is more than just a race — it’s a race for inspiration. This much-anticipated and signature fundraising event for AbilityFirst is geared for the entire community, as the charity joins forces with you to create a hope-filled and exciting atmosphere for those affected by a developmental and/or physical disability. With the number of those in need of special needs programs steadily increasing, now, more than ever, your participation and support inspires their team to go the distance, demonstrate strength and pride in their mission, and promote inclusiveness for those with special needs.

The 5K takes place on April 7, 2012 at the Santa Anita Park located at:
285 West Huntington Drive 
Arcadia, CA 91007
