Monster Miles Success

Supporters walk the Monster Mile for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Friends of The Arc of Delaware joined together on Saturday, October 19, 2013, to celebrate the organization’s 60th anniversary at Dover International Speedway. Over 50 people, including individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, walked the Monster Mile to raise funds and awareness for The Arc.

This is the first year that The Arc of Delaware has participated in Monster Miles for a Cause, an annual charity event held at the Speedway. Funds raised will support the Mid-Del Committee of The Arc of Delaware, located in Dover, which provides services to persons in Kent and Sussex counties.

“We wanted to do something unique as part of our 60th anniversary celebration – this event was a great opportunity to see the inside of this nationally televised venue and to bring together supporters of The Arc from throughout the state,” said Merry Jones, Vice President of the Board for The Arc of Delaware. “Everyone who participated really enjoyed themselves. We are grateful for the support shown at Monster Miles for a Cause for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”

This year’s event featured seven organizations, including a marathon, two 5ks, and numerous walks around the track. A variety of activities including live music and vendors were also available to participants in the event.


All of our wonderful participants took a minute to pose in front of Miles the Monster before heading to the track for the walk.


Ready, Set, GO!


Excited to begin the walk.
