On Saturday morning, representatives of Community Living Essex County welcomed members of the community to participate in the local portion of the A Million Possibilities event, a stationary rowing challenge, at the parking lot of BeachWalk Family Fitness.

The event, hosted as the local portion of the province-wide awareness event for the Million Possibilities challenge, was to to raise awareness about the challenges of individuals who have an intellectual disability.

CLEC’s Manager of Community Relations and Resource Development Tony DeSantis explained this was a first-time event of this nature for the local organization that provides supports and services to around 650 local individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. It was hoped the inaugural event, he said, would strengthen existing partnerships and create new ones.
