Secure your tickets for All The Difference’s 6th Annual New England Style Clambake Fundraiser at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church this Saturday, October 3rd.  The goal of their fundraiser is to build awareness of their mission, support local clinics, and continue providing treatment, education, and support for children and adults with developmental and learning differences.

All The Difference (ATD) evaluates, treats, and researches sensory integration dysfunction, learning differences, and disabilities – an area currently lacking at both schools and local hospitals in the Delaware area.  Without this service, children and adults have an increased chance to develop sensory integration difficulties, ultimately creating long-term, debilitating social and health conditions.  At ATD, providing access to these services allows individuals to receive the pediatric therapy services they need.

The Annual Clambake will be one for the books, with fresh Maine seafood, talented live music, and a great array of auction items! For more information about attending the 6th Annual New England Style Clambake Fundraiser and to support All the Difference’s work helping those with development and learning disabilities, click here.

The Mid-Atlantic Society for Vascular Nurses was founded in 2014 to enhance public awareness of vascular disease within Delaware. In an effort to build awareness and educate the community about vascular disease, MASVN is hosting their first 5K and Health Fair, this weekend at Glasgow Park.  They place immense value on fitness and how living an active lifestyle positively effects individuals’ vascular health. At their Health Fair, MASVN will encourage, inform, and demonstrate how to create and manage a healthier lifestyle.  All funds raised at this event will go directly to helping MASVN continue providing our community with education surrounding vascular disease.

Looking to run? The registration fee is only $25/person AND every participant will receive a complimentary t-shirt. We encourage everyone to come out and support the Mid-Atlantic Society for Vascular Nurses’ hard work, explore all the stands at the FREE Health Fair, and cheer-on the runners, racing to support such a worthy cause.
