"Why We Shock"
Shocktober is much more than the 5th most terrifying haunted house in the country. It’s also the largest source of critical fundraising revenue for The Arc of Loudoun, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities and their families.
You may be wondering, “Why would a non-profit host a haunted house?” If you take one step on The Arc of Loudoun’s campus you’ll realize it was meant to be. Right in the middle of it all stands Paxton Manor, the truly haunted, terrifying home of Shocktober. The funds raised from the haunt go directly back to supporting, educating, and advocating for people with physical and intellectual disabilities. Every day we work to make sure our students and clients know they have a place to come for help, encouragement, resources and kindness.
This is why we Shock. We Scare Because We Care. Do you?
Become a “Why We Shock” fundraiser and rally your friends, family, and classmates to support people with disabilities and their families.
Starting a “Why We Shock” fundraiser is easy to do, and it’s fun. We’ll even give you all the tools you need to raise much-needed revenue and provide a lifetime of opportunities for people with disabilities and their families.
Thank you for partnering with us as we together Shock for the Arc!
