Through archival images and footage, and dozens of interviews, “Valuing Lives” explores the principle of normalization, an idea that challenged our fundamental assumptions about people with intellectual disabilities, and the iconoclastic professor whose intense, multi-day workshops trained thousands of human services professionals in the theory and practice of this idea.

People of all ages and abilities are welcome at the Walk-a-thon at Tully Lake in Royalston, sponsored by local businesses. Community members get pledges and participate in the day by whatever means they are able. Some walk the entire trail, others walk a shorter distance. The event also includes a raffle and free cookout. 

Come join us for dinner!

Generous donations from the Athol Congregational Church allows all revenue from ticket sales to go directly to fulfilling NQCA’s mission.
