Active Re-Entry, a facility founded to help those with disabilities achieve a better lifestyle, hosted its 12th annual Run, Walk and Roll For Independence 5K on Saturday. The organization, located in Carbon County, is one of six such facilities found throughout Utah and the 5K is part of a state-wide program.
This local organization covers about 27,000 square miles and has around 17 different programs, director Nancy Bentley expressed.
The 5K route started at the Active Re-Entry facility on Fairgrounds Road and then followed the road past the Carbon County Events Center and Senior Citizen Center before turning around and ending where it had started.
The proceeds from the event are being used to help purchase needed assistive technology such as hand-rails, ramps and other items that will contribute to helping those with disabilities.
