Run to Work 2021 is the inaugural fundraising effort benefitting Work Opportunities that was originally intended to be held in 2020! Edmonds resident and committee member Armando Ortiz had qualified for the 2020 Boston Marathon and planned to run for Work Opportunities, a nonprofit organization that provides essential supported employment services to nearly 450 people with disabilities in Snohomish, King and Whatcom Counties.
Now, Armando has qualified for the 2022 Boston Marathon and will run on behalf of Work Opportunities! Armando is training to run the Boston Marathon next spring on behalf of Work Opportunities because he believes that people with disabilities deserve to be valued members of the workforce.
Since 1963, Work Opportunities’ mission has been to promote self-determination, self-respect, and community participation for people with disabilities through work.
