Walkers, runners brave rain for Courageous Steps

Written by

OLD TOWN - People got soaked for a good cause Sunday when they participated in the Courageous Steps Project's annual fundraiser.

 

Despite the rain, dozens of people lined up on Old Town High School's track to raise money for people with developmental disabilities.

 

The sixth annual walk-run honored Dylan McInnis, who had autism.

 

'Dylan was a former hockey player who had many great ambitions of helping his community but more importantly embracing the challenges he had himself, so we wanted to dedicate this event in his honor," said Courageous Steps Project founder Connor Archer.

 

Archer said Sunday's event raised around $10,000.
