April 18th, 2016

The Mt. St. Dominick Academy student was inspired by her cousin, who is on the Autism spectrum.

If you’re seeking inspiring students who care about their classmates with developmental disabilities – or may have one themselves – look no further than Essex County.

According to The Arc of Essex County, a local nonprofit that assists individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Caldwell's Dominique Macaluso will be among several honored elementary, middle, and high school students during the organization’s 18th Annual “Building Tomorrows” initiative.

Each recognized student has a developmental disability themselves, or has a close connection to someone with a disability and wish to spread awareness, according to a news release.

The 18th Annual Building Tomorrows 5K run, two-mile run and Family Fun Fest is slated for Saturday, April 16 at Brookdale Park in Montclair/Bloomfield.
