RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Area residents can help people with disabilities by participating in a Rutherford walk on Labor Day to raise awareness about dwindling resources.

Families will assemble at the corner of Ames and Park avenues, in front of the Bank of America, at 11 a.m. Parents and families will discuss their concerns about dwindling resources and a weakened public policy regarding the quality of life for those who live with disabilities.
Past walkers and supporters have included U.S. Sen. Corey Booker, U.S. Rep. Bill Parcells, Assemblyman Gary Schaer, Assemblywoman Marlene Caride, State Sen. Joe Vitale and Freeholders from several counties.
