Help us raise funds to support our programs by participating in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. Highmark underwrites the cost of the entire event so that 100% of the money raised goes directly to Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania and helps local families!
Saturday, June 2, 2018
DeSales University, Center Valley
7:45am Registration begins (check-in at the Easterseals tent)
9:00am Walks begin
The 1.78 mile (2.86k) route is fully accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
HOW IT WORKS:
Highmark organizes the walk and we benefit by recruiting walkers for Easterseals. It’s easy and it’s free! REGISTER ONLINE by signing up as an individual, joining an Easterseals team or starting your own team. You must register in order to participate. Create a personal fundraising page and tell your story. Ask friends, coworkers and family to sponsor you or join your team and raise their own funds; spread the word on social media; and ask local businesses to sponsor you. Check out some of our useful Fundraising Tips. All checks should be made payable to Easterseals Eastern PA.
We’ve got two great teams for you to join!
ESEP Walk Crew led by Corey Nelson includes consumers who participate in our recreation and community support programs and the staff who serve them.
Team EI led by Jill Glose includes families who use our early intervention services and the therapists and staff who serve them.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE YOU CAN MAKE:
$250 provides 4 days of respite for a family
$300 provides 1 week of Camp Lily
$500 provides 6 months of recreation activities for young adults with disabilities
$1,250 provides 1 week for a camper to attend Easterseals Camp Growing Green
Families that raise $200 or more will earn a four-pack of tickets to a Lehigh Valley attraction (in the past we have given out tickets to Lehigh Valley Zoo, Da Vinci Science Center and Dorney Park).
All Team Captains receive a thank you gift for signing up. Team Captains who raise $200 or more receive an Easterseals pint glass and a $20 Outback Steakhouse gift card.
Registered walkers who raise or donate $30.00 will receive a Walk T-shirt from Highmark while supplies last. You must be a registered walker and attend the Walk to receive a T-shirt. In order to qualify, your online personal fundraising page must show under the “I have raised” section a minimum amount of $30.00 by Thursday, June 1st. Because t-shirts need to be ordered in advance, gifts handed in the day of the event do not count toward t-shirt credit. If you want to bring your cash or check donations to our Allentown office prior to Wednesday, May 30th, we can enter them into your online account and your gift(s) will count towards the free t-shirt.
