UCP Oregon is pleased to announce that Marie Blanchard will be the Ambassador for the 2018 Walk, Roll 'n' Run (WRR).
Marie experiences cerebral palsy, and has been an important part of the WRR since the very first event (in 2005), when she was the main organizer and captain of a WRR team. She was 13 that year and did all the organizing herself. She's been a team captain ever since.
Each year, she reaches out to everyone she knows, requesting that they join her team or sponsor her for the event.
She loves UCP and raises funds for UCP all year long, not just during the WRR. She’s raised more than $45,000 since 2005!
Marie will receive her honors from at our upcoming UCP Friends Breakfast on Tuesday, May 15th.
Thank you to the sponsors, participants, and supporters of this year's Walk, Roll 'n' Run! Together we raised more than $90,000 for UCP Family Support.
Fundraising is open through September 30, so if you haven't donated yet, please help us reach our $100,000 goal! To donate, visit the event's website.
