Event Information:

Easter Seals Walk With Me is a national fundraising event to raise awareness and support for children and adults living with disabilities. Individual walkers and teams join hundreds of other passionate people in their community to learn, connect with others and have fun at the event. Each participant's motivation to walk is unique; it may be personal, or for a classmate, a friend, the child of a loved one, a neighbor or a colleague. Twenty percent of the U.S. population lives with a disability today. We walk for them, their future and the families who love them. Easter Seals
