Hoping to bring awareness to state leaders on the importance of sheltered workshops like Production Unlimited in Watertown, a group of local residents have begun a walk from Watertown that will take them all the way to the state capital in Albany.

The three women began their walk Sunday in front of the West Main St. business.

The goal is to let the state know of the importance behind sheltered workshops when it comes to helping the developmentally disabled.

The state recently backed off on a plan to close down these workshops entirely.

The trio is expected to arrive to Albany sometime next week.
