16th Annual Walk A Mile For A Special Child

The Arc of Tyler, Smith County held its 16th Annual Walk A Mile for a Special Child at Rose Rudman Park in Tyler. Several hundred people enjoyed the nice weather for the walk. This year's featured child, Bailey, started things off with the Pledge of Allegiance.

This year's shirt was designed by Danny Matteucci. His mom told us the night was a huge success. This year's chairman, Debbie Matteucci, said, "We've had great turn out, we added several new events, and our kids are always of course having a wonderful time, so as long as the kids are having a good time, we're having a great time."

The event in the Arc's biggest fundraiser of the year. The Arc provides all kinds of services to those with mental disabilities, such as skills training and social activities.
