JAMESTOWN – The 25th annual Laurel Memorial Run and Walk kicked off in Jamestown on Friday morning, highlighting the ability of those with disabilities.








The run started at the Resource Center’s Jamestown location, with area school students and local officials taking part in a countywide relay.

Among the highlights, was Laurel’s Legacy Lap at McCrea Point Park, which featured those with disabilities taking a lap showing off their abilities.









Laurel’s parents, Wayne and Elaine Hotelling, explain that with the right opportunities those with disabilities can shine.

“These people are capable, and if you will give them opportunities which are provided by The Resource Center and other groups, it is something that we really need and we need to concentrate on,” explained Wayne Hotelling.















Events continue Saturday in Silver Creek, with an 8:10 a.m. opening ceremony before a 5K walk, 8K run, another legacy lap and awards ceremony mid-morning.
