STAMFORD - ARI of Connecticut held its 8th annual Walk for Independence at Cove Island State Park in Stamford Sunday.

ARI of Connecticut develops and offers services to meet the needs of people living with disabilities, and helps them reach their full potential at work, home and in the community. 

Organizers say the 1, 2, and 3-mile walks raised support for programs that benefit their clients.

They hoped to raise $50,000 to benefit their cause.
