A few team members at Waltz LTC were proud to participate in a run to benefit the Independence Association.  We were also a Gold Sponsor!

The Independence Association (IA) was founded by area families in 1966 to assist adults and children with disabilities in obtaining full and inclusive lives in their chosen community.

Today, IA works to open new doors, push boundaries and create opportunities that encourage inclusivity and equal opportunity while celebrating every individual’s ability.

The 5th Annual Run for Independence is an inclusive event that celebrates everyone’s abilities. The race allows people with and without disabilities to participate as equals in a professionally timed athletic event. Runners and families value the chance to connect with community organizations that improve the quality of life in Mid-coast Maine.

We had a great turnout from the Waltz LTC family, and a few came in 1st place for their age group!  Participants from the pharmacy included (in order from left to right in above picture):

  • Courtney Oland, RPh– President (Age group winner 10k)
  • Michael Cushing, RPh – Clinical Consultant Pharmacist (Age group winner 10k)
  • Alicia Knowles – Data Entry Technician
