​WALK for Vista Sets Fundraising, Participation Records
Nearly 300 people took steps to make a positive impact at the WALK for Vista fundraiser on Oct. 30 in Madison, raising nearly $67,000 for Vista Life Innovations, a post-secondary education program supporting individuals with disabilities.
This year’s event stands to net a record high of $64,000. Proceeds from the WALK benefit Vista's programs and services as well as the Ed Gallant Financial Aid Fund, which provides scholarship opportunities to Vista's students and members.
The event also set a record for the highest number of participants with 294 registered walkers over 32 fundraising teams. Among the participants were state Senator Ted Kennedy Jr. of Branford and state Rep. Noreen Kokoruda of Madison. 
Held from Vista’s Madison Campus on Bradley Road, the WALK featured 3 and 5 mile routes through the heart of downtown Madison and along the shoreline. Participants enjoyed a warm-up led by Valley Shore YMCA and a musical send-off from the Lancraft Fife and Drum Corps.
Vista would like to thank event sponsors Walgreens, Essex Printing, Shore Publishing and Vornado Realty Trust.
