PigAbilities Meetups

Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services (HCDDS) partnered with Queen City Running Club to host PigAbilities Meetups and help participants get ready for the one-mile event during Flying Pig weekend.

“Our Meetups are an opportunity for people to get outside and get active,” said Ann Myres, HCDDS Community Navigator and leader of the PigAbilities Meetups. “It’s also a chance to connect and meet new people who are working toward the same goal.”
