Rep. Thomas Murt Addressing Participants at Awareness Walk

On a chilly but sunny day several hundred individuals joined Representative Thomas Murt on an awareness walk highlighting intellectual and developmental disabilities. Rep. Murt is a devoted advocate for the rights of individuals with disabilities within the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. From coordinating awareness events like this walk in Horsham, to advocating and increasing funds devoted to reducing the I/DD and Autism Waiting list for individual services Rep. Murt champions the issues and concerns facing individuals and families in our community. The Arc Alliance commends and thanks Rep. Murt for all his work and support.

Scott Camilleri & Rep. Thomas Murt addressing families

Scott Camilleri, Executive Director of The Arc Alliance Foundation was provided the opportunity to address the assembled group of walk participants prior to the event. “This was a great time for the hundreds of individuals and family members to assemble and show support for both Rep. Murt as well as to raise awareness of the issues individuals with disabilities face. The community was supportive as many people applauded, waved or honked thier horns as they drove pass the walkers. A special word of thanks to Rep. Murt as well as the many police and fireman and women who volunteered to aid in crossing streets safely.”
