All proceeds from the Light the Torch 180 5K will go towards providing critical vocational training, student scholarships, and operating our facility. Torch 180 aims to educate and train young adults with disabilities or other obstacles to employment. Many of our young people live with various disabilities or co-existing conditions creating some unique needs that we work hard to accommodate.
It is estimated that unemployment among individuals with disabilities in Michigan is 75%; those with autism is 85%! Our program offers hands-on training and experience in a state-of-the-art facility preparing our students for gainful employment opportunities in their communities and thereby creating a real possibility for their future independence!

Light the Torch 180 5K was created to offer a healthy community challenge, bring awareness to inclusive employment, and to support our operation of critical vocational training. We believe in the power of our supporters and are inspired not only by your enthusiasm for our cause, but by the joined sense of community that makes up our “Torch 180 Village!”
We can accelerate the growth of the Torch 180 vocational and employment programs through your support of and participation in the Light the Torch 180 5K. Every participant is highly encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 by race day. This is a drop in the bucket, right? Asking a few friends or family to give a few bucks means that, collectively, we will be able to accelerate the promising work and opportunities Torch 180 provides in our area. To thank you for your efforts, we will be awarding tokens of appreciation for different levels of support and offering fun challenges!
