Thurston County Inclusion is hosting its first (hopefully, annual) Runway Show benefitting TCI. This runway show is an opportunity for teens and adults (9th Grade +) with and without intellectual disabilities to be models: get dressed up and strut down the runway! 


The fashion show will be high energy, loud and may have flashing lights (i.e. camera). If the model is sensitive to light and or loud sounds, this may not be the right opportunity. Models will also be required to get onto a stage in front of as many as 150 people and go down a runway. The runway will be wheelchair accessible. Assistance (i.e. volunteer without IDD) can be provided to help walk the runway if needed (please let us know in advance). The event will take place on Sunday, May 19th at The Womens Club of Olympia-Abigail Stuart House


Prior to the fashion show, we will go "shopping" with our participants for runway outfits. This is done in advance so we can make any adjustments to the outfits if necessary. This is at NO cost to the model and models will get to keep their outfits after the show. Model is welcome to provide different attire for the show and style their outfits with accessories! An optional service of Styling will be available for hair and makeup before the show.

Help TCI Fundraise!:

This is TCI's largest annual fundraiser and we ask our participants' help in fundraising. Therefore each Model will become an Inclusion Ambassador! Their family, friends and community can support them by donating on a unique link specifically to them. All model who participates will receive a gift. The top 3 fundraisers will receive a bonus prize; includes gift cards, accessories and much more!


Important Info:

Models will need to provide their own shoes for event. Transportation is not provided. We are unable to assist with eating/drinking, medications, medical care, wheelchair transfers, some behaviors and escorting into or out of events per Thurston County Inclusion’s policy (available upon request).
