Literary League Gets Reading for the CPC

Today's guest post is by Alexandria D'Auria

We formed our book club, The Ladies Literary League, because we all share a deep love of literature--from the classics to contemporary fiction. Each month we meet at a different member’s house and have lively discussions about the books we have read. We indulge in sweet treats, delicious drinks, and lots of fun and laughter. We challenge our minds every month with the literature we read.

Now we are eager to challenge our hearts and bodies as we prepare to Walk and Run for a Day of Hope.

One of our members, who is an employee of YAI, first brought our attention to YAI and Broadview Networks Central Park Challenge. She enlightened us about the “Day of Hope” and the funds and awareness this immeasurable event raises for children and adults with developmental disabilities. This cause is also very close to our hearts because one of our other members has a sister who benefits from the remarkable services of a YAI day habilitation program. We know that she, along with hundreds of other individuals, will gain from our efforts and contributions at the Central Park Challenge.

This is just one amazingly creative way that a family member and a staff member have used to leverage their interests to help people with disabilities. Do you have a story like this one? Let us know by emailing us at
