Our 2020 CommUNITY Walk is on the way!
As we cannot gather in large groups this year, we are asking teams to walk together virtually; whether it be residential homes, day programs, families or getting out individually. Instead of one day of fun, we’re planning two weeks! From Sunday, September 13th to Saturday, September 26th – we will be walking together!
At this year’s annual CommUNITY Walk, you can participate whenever is best for you within the two-week event window. Why stop there? This year, you can participate however you’d like, too! Instead of walking; go for a run, swim, shoot a basketball or knit a sweater – whatever activity makes you happy. Share with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #WeAreCommunitas!
Register for this year’s CommUNITY Walk; the first 300 to register will receive a free event t-shirt by clicking the link below!
Each Communitas CommUNITY Walk team has selected their own Dream; a group fundraising goal for a fun group activity, project or resource that they wouldn’t typically have the opportunity for. Please consider donating to the team of your choice!

Starting five years ago as EMARC Walks With You at Ipswich River Park, our CommUNITY walk has changed each year, and while this year’s event looks different, the values have always stayed the same: creating a team-oriented and active event to promote community, health and togetherness. Designed to be accessible for all people, the CommUNITY Walk 2020 is an annual Communitas event. A self-paced, individual, and team pledge walk for everyone; including those with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities.
