On Saturday, October 7, 2023, Project Independence held its 14th Annual “Walk for Independence” at TeWinkle Park in Costa Mesa. Thank you to our sponsors, supporters, and walkers for helping to support our programs for people with intellectual disabilities in Southern California! Our sponsors included The Costa Mesa-based Daily Pilot newspaper, and U.S. Bank.
Everyone had a great time with friends and family, enjoyed goodie bags and prizes, and visited local exhibitors, all while getting some great exercise! Orange County Supervisor Foley participated in the walk and even assisted with arranging for some tree debris removal blocking the path. We are excitedly preparing for next year’s 15th Annual Walk and we may have some fun surprises that we will announce next year!
We’d like to thank the City of Costa Mea for creating this fabulous video of the walk that also gives a nice overview of what Project Independence does!
