_The 2022 7th Annual Running with the Chromies:

This 7th Annual Running with the Chromies 10K/5K Run Walk or Roll and 1K Fun Walk will follow the beautiful paved Gemini Springs Trails, portions of which have beautiful tree canopied areas.  This race is fully accessible, whether you are walking, running on rolling and the 10K and 5K are chip timed on USTAF certified courses (links are provided below).  This event is held in March in honor of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.  Following the race, in the Oak Tree Area at Gemini Springs, is a family resource and fun day, where families will be able to interact with various businesses and organizations that offer services and information.  

Welcoming Hearts is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for all individuals with Special Needs by providing information and support to individuals, families, professionals and the community through education and social settings. Since its inception in 2015, Welcoming Hearts has been providing social opportunities for families through playdates, teen club and mom's/dad's nights out.  In addition we have family events for Easter, Summer, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, giving families the opportunity to celebrate when they otherwise wouldn't, due to their children's needs.

Also Welcoming Hearts hosts an annual resource fair, bringing out local organizations and businesses who provide resources or services for the special needs community.  We continue to work on getting resource information into pediatrician/specialists offices to hand out to families in need.  Our long term vision is a facility to allow us to expand our programs to better service the special needs community, like day, after school and summer programs. Thank you for your support!
