Mohawk Valley Metric Century is on May 13, 2017 in Eugene, OR.

The Mohawk Valley Metric Century is a benefit for Oregon Supported Living Program’s Arts & Culture Program, one of the few truly integrated arts programs in the nation serving people of all ability levels.

Every single adult with a developmental disability who participates in the Arts & Culture Program is low income. While people with disabilities have their most basic needs met through the state and insurance, they have little to nothing left over for education, personal growth, and joy.
