CHICO, Calif. - The Peg Taylor Center celebrated its 33rd anniversary of providing services for its participants Wednesday.
The anniversary celebration precedes the center’s annual Poppy Walk and 5K Run, which will take place in Bidwell Park April 6.
Sherriff Honea will start the race.
To date, the Poppy Walk has raised over $195,000 in support of the center. All proceeds will go toward caring for adults with health concerns.
The center serves over 60 adults with health conditions. Since opening in 1986, the center has provided over 1.7 million hours of care.
The center’s daytime health and wellness program benefits its participants through social connection, rehabilitation, care coordination and ongoing support.
