Two Heartland women want to make sure that people who have disabilities get the support they need. Christy Baughman and Sarah Spencer have put together a run/walk called "DASH for disABILITIES.â?? The proceeds will go to a local self advocacy group in Kirksville called People First. â??This event is very important to me,â?? Baughman said. â??My little girl has autism and someday she's going to use these same exact services.â??

The race is July 11 at 6:30 p.m. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. at ATSU School of Health Management. It is $20 for the 5k and 2.5K and $10 for the kidsâ?? race and tickets can be purchased at the ATSU School of Health Management.
