The Talimena ½ Marathon Run & Relay fundraiser is set for Saturday, March 11, 2017.  This year there will again be an Individual Category, a 4 Person Relay, & a 13 Person Relay.

The primary purpose of this event is to support the programs for physically and mentally challenged adults and children who benefit each day by the services provided by the Polk County Developmental Center (PCDC).

Ongoing services and programs provided by PCDC include:

  • An Adult Work Center that houses adult education classrooms as well as the Recycling Center.
  • The AVANTS Group Living Center, which is a residential housing facility for developmentally disabled women.
  • The Resale Store that provides work-training skills for the adult clients.
  • The Jumpstart Preschool and Daycare which provides Developmental Evaluations, Speech Therapy, and Transportation Services throughout a three county area. Also one on one teaching and Developmental Training.

We, the residents of Mena and Polk, Scott and Montgomery Counties are so fortunate to have this wonderful resource available to assist challenged persons in meeting goals of greater independence and productivity.
