Easterseals Oregon's Walk With Me Goes Virtual – A Walk to Support People With Disabilities
By: Treadway Events & Entertainment
Every walk is a lifeline of funds that enables Easterseals Oregon to continue providing vital services and support to people with disabilities and their families and other disenfranchised Oregonians. These critical programs support both children and adults with disabilities and include sending kids to summer camp where activities are designed to be inclusive; providing job development and coaching services to individuals with disabilities who have language and/or literacy barriers; helping Veterans find housing and employment; and assisting low-income seniors with skills training and job leads. "We are proud to serve over 2,500 individuals and their families throughout Oregon," said Carol Salter, President/CEO of Easterseals Oregon. "Without the ability to host our annual fundraising events this year, our inaugural Walk With Me virtual event is critical for raising the funds we need. I want to personally thank our community in advance for supporting Easterseals Oregon."
The 2020 Walk With Me event is scheduled to take place between October 24-31, 2020. Participants can register at https://eastersealswalk.org/
