Arkansas Support Network will welcome athletes of all abilities for the sixth annual Moving Together: Walk-Run-Roll on Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park at Lake Fayetteville.
The inclusive day of moving will include a chipped 5K paved run with wheelchair-friendly course, a chip-timed 10K trail run and a 1-mile fun walk, roll and run. In a nod to the nonprofit organization's 30th anniversary of its founding in 1988, the theme for the day will be "flashback to the '80s," with a special prize for the best 1980s costume. Registration for events is $15 to $35.

The group serves individuals with disabilities with offerings that include the Community Parent Resource Center, community living services and vocational foundations -- such as supported employment, social and work skills development and enrichment opportunities in creativity, recreation and literacy.
