More than 200 participate in Athletes with Disabilities walk/run event

June 12, 2017

PENNSAUKEN TWP., N.J. – The Athletes with Disabilities Network Northeast recently hosted a 5K run and 1-mile run/walk to benefit its mentoring, outreach and adaptive sports programs. According to program officials, 211 people participated in the event, which was held at Cooper River Park. The event also benefited injured Atlantic City police officer Joshlee “Josh” Vadell, who sustained a gunshot wound to the head while attempting to stop a robbery on Sept. 3, 2016. Sources said Vadell is undergoing rehabilitation.

“Today is about education and awareness, and it is also about supporting one of our injured officers from the area, Josh Vadell,” Brandon Holiday, executive director of Athletes with Disabilities Network Northeast, told O&P News. “He had some setbacks today, so he will not be in attendance; but today is about spreading awareness for the ability of our disabled community members and what we can do to show it is not a disability. We may achieve our goals in a different way, but we still do the same things.”
