Morgan's Wonderland Trip: #ACT2MORGANS
Morgan’s Wonderland is an “ultra-accessible” theme park located in San Antonio, Texas. As mentioned on their website, the park is a completely wheelchair-accessible park and features more than 25 attractions including rides, playgrounds and more. Morgan’s Wonderland is the perfect destination for ACT students and their families. So, next summer ACT is planning to take a trip to Morgan’s Wonderland.

Please note, that our fundraising goal is to pay for one student and one chaperone. Each additional person will be $100. There is a $50 deposit that must be made by December 21, 2018.

The ACTion walk last year was a major success and helped the Achievement Center to raise the funds for two new changing tables. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 to better serve the students at the Achievement Center.
This year’s walk will take place on October 20th at Holford Park. Check-in will start at 9 a.m. and the race will begin at 11 a.m. The registration fee for a team of 5 is $100, $25 for individuals and $10 for children. Everyone who registers for the walk will also receive a limited-edition ACT t-shirt.
If you’re unable to make the race don’t worry! This year there will also be a virtual walk. This means you can complete the race at your own pace and on your own time from anywhere. You will also get a t-shirt after registration for the virtual race.
Looking to volunteer? There are many opportunities to get involved with the race. Volunteers are needed for setup, registration and to help during the walk. For more details on the volunteer opportunities and to sign up click here.
