Over the past weekend Chris Nikic became the first person with Down Syndrome to do an Ironman. If you are unfamiliar with Ironman triathlons they consist of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile run, raced in that order. It is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. Congrats Chris!

The Arc is proud to partner with Illinois DCFS to create these "investigator kits" to assist caseworkers in the field. These kits also provided job opportunities for people with disabilities. Nice!

Planted in purpose and in memorial to Mary Welsh, an individual who has passed just last week. The family of Kim Wright planted this beautiful and hardy hydrangea to keep her memory alive at the house she called a home. Mary was a beloved member of her household and her memory will live on with her housemates and with this shrub that will grow, mature, and flower with each passing year. Rest in peace Mary.

Services & Advocacy for People with Disabilities

We often get asked, what does The Arc do? In a nutshell, we serve people with disabilities and their families. We are equal parts a service provider and advocacy organization. We promote the equal treatment of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in community life so as to make available their full productive and creative capacities. We have been serving the Quad Cities since 1952, providing services that empower people with disabilities to believe in their own unique abilities and achieve their full potential.

Today is my cousin Lori Humphrey's 55th birthday. I don't know where she lives or I would call her or go to see her. If someone could get a Happy Birthday message to her that would be great! She can call me if she would like to! Thank you.
