Changes This Year

New this year, BCFR will combine the annual Fun Run with People First of Boone County‘s annual Walk & Roll-A-Thon in October. So instead of having the Fun Run at the agency picnic, we encourage everyone to sign up to participate in the Walk & Roll-A-Thon on Saturday, October 13 starting at 2 p.m. at Stephens Lake Park. Walk or roll around beautiful Stephens Lake and then enjoy some refreshments. The Walk & Roll-A-Thon is a free event open to people of all abilities to help raise awareness for People First and National Disability Employment Awareness month. Download a flyer and watch our Facebook page for more information on how to register.
