Salem Christian Homes empowers 112 people who have a developmental disability ranging from autism or Down syndrome to mental retardation and cerebral palsy. Providing loving, Christian care and training in 19 community homes, Salem has been the leading pioneer in the field for people with disabilities for over 52 years. With the government supplying only 79% of their cost to provide food, transportation, training, therapies, and loving care, Salem is left with a $1 million funding gap. Salem has just over $300,000 left to raise before their fiscal year ends on June 30, 2013. Salem started this 5K to bring awareness to people with disabilities. Over 100 Salem residents will be running, walk or rolling in their wheelchair at the event. Last year, it brought in over 350 participants and raised over $50,000 for Salem’s mission!
