Team Invincible 

The Arc of Whatcom County's TEAM INVINCIBLE will be participating in the Whatcom Volunteer Center's 2012 Human Race event, and we want you to join the fun! The Human Race is a 5K walk and 5K/10K run inside the beautiful harbor loop on Bellingham Bay. Participants decide what agency to support and raise funds for it by asking friends, family, co-workers and neighbors for donations.

 

This is a great opportunity to get involved and bring awareness to our community about individuals with developmental disabilities. We look forward to your support!
