2017 Gordon Shelton Memorial Walk-a-Thon


2017 Walk-a-thon Date: Sunday, May 21, 2017

Location: Sussex County Fair Grounds - Time: 11AM - 3PM


Gordon Shelton - A true leader in the community of individuals with developmental disabilities, Gordon was also active with SCARC for many years, joining the Board in 1980. Continuing his commitment, he was also a member of the ARC of New Jersey Board of Trustees and was president from 1994-1995. Gordon's dedication stemmed from his daughter Bonnie's disability, Rett's Syndrome. Bonnie has participated in many SCARC programs over the years and most recently is a part of SCARC's Sparta Center program. Gordon, his wife, and his family were volunteers of various SCARC functions, including the annual Walk-a-thon. Gordon passed on June 7, 2009. His participation on the board will be missed and his deep commitment to advocacy for persons with developmental disabilities will never be forgotten. As a tribute to Gordon, the SCARC Foundation Board has decided to rename our Walk-a-thon The Gordon Shelton Memorial Walk-a-thon. JOIN A TEAM OR BETTER YET.......LEAD A TEAM!

The SCARC Foundation has been able to maintain its personal approach to the community by asking community members to establish teams for the Walk-a-thon. Each team member is encouraged to solicit friends, neighbors, relatives and business associates for donations. Each team's strength is built not in the number of people on the team, but in the Captain's ability to select people who will raise funds for people with developmental disabilities and have an understanding that they have an overall team goal to achieve. Thank you for your support!
