Local toll road to help fund Camp Sunnyside

On April 5, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Hamilton County Pony Express Riders will be holding a toll road at East and West Second Street and South Superior Street to raise money for Camp Sunnyside. All money raised will go to help with the special needs of many children and adults with disabilities.

Money raised by Pony Express is donated to Camp Sunnyside, which helps nearly 8,000 Iowans with disabilities annually. Camp Sunnyside is Easter Seals’ flagship program, offering recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities.

Easter Seals also offers:

A place to try new activities and learn new skills like horseback riding, boating and camping.

A place that will loan a wheelchair or other durable medical equipment to a family who cannot afford to buy one.

A place that will help farmers who have a disability stay on the farm when they thought there was no hope.

A place that provides respite services to families and caregivers.

A place that provides training for independent living, self-reliance and confidence in ones own abilities.
