About the Event
Miss RemarkAble was created by Aptiv, formerly known as Riverfront, as an event to give women with disabilities the ability to build life skills and self-confidence. This event is a fundraiser that benefits the Aptiv Foundation, which generates charitable gifts to fund facility improvements, new programming and equipment needs for services provided to people with disabilities. The Aptiv Foundation provides the financial resources to create new projects, programs, initiatives or purchase adaptive equipment for the individuals with disabilities served by Aptiv.
All proceeds from the event are utilized to ensure that people with disabilities can achieve a more confident and connected experience in our community.
