Students in Gannon’s School of Education from SPSEA and GUSEC joined in a walk for a great cause this weekend. 

The SPSEA represents the Pennsylvania State Education Association, and GUSEC is Gannon's Society for Exceptional Children. This club provides opportunities for members to interact with exceptional individuals, educate others on how to interact with exceptional individuals, and to provide students with volunteer opportunities.

The Arc of Erie County's "Buddy Walk" was held this past Saturday as a way to celebrate children and adults with disabilities as well as their families. 

About The Arc Erie County

As part of a national organization, our primary goal is to improve supports and services available for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. That’s our responsibility. But locally, we see ourselves as much more! Together, we are a “family” of individuals working together to improve the quality of life for those in the greater Erie area facing challenges. Siblings, parents, friends, teachers, physicians, employers, and social workers – we see everyone as a valuable member of our community.
