Walk 2022 Recap

Our 13th Annual Walk for Independence at TeWinkle Park was held on Saturday in Costa Mesa. The walk raised over $40,000 to fund programs that assist people with daily living skills, help them find and retain employment and accomplish errands and other vital activities. The event was a bit of a soft return to an in-person format, after two years of virtual walks during the pandemic!

Project Independent client Noah Torgeson provided on-site musical entertainment under the stage name DJ Noah, while client Craig Thompson served as this year’s grand marshal of the walk. Thompson and fellow client John Correa received awards Saturday for their participation and contributions. Correa’s donation, the highest amount raised by a single walker, clocked in at an impressive $2,280.”

This year’s event was sponsored by Union Bank, and organizers received a certificate of recognition from former Costa Mesa mayor and Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley.
