We are so honored that more than 4,000 YAI staff, family members, friends, and people we support joined us for this year's Central Park Challenge. It was an absolute pleasure!

There's still time to make a donation to help us reach our goal and support YAI and more than 20,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
