Esteban “Stevie” De La Mora was one of several thousand walkers at last Saturday’s Arc Walk for Independence. Stevie has Down syndrome and has experienced health problems over the last couple of years, making walking difficult. He had a heart procedure two weeks ago but insisted he would walk the Arc Walk. Friends and family of Stevie put together a team and Stevie did, indeed, finish the walk.
The Arc Walk raised thousands of dollars for The Arc - Los Angeles & Orange Counties and also raised awareness of people with developmental disabilities. Next year’s walk is scheduled for March 21, 2015.
