June 2 event will benefit NH residents with disabilities and special needs
Easter Seals New Hampshire and Title Sponsor Eversource have teamed up to present the Eversource Walk With Me & 5K Run for Easter Seals on June 2, 2016 at Veteran's Memorial Park in Manchester, NH. The event, now in its 17th year, is expanding in size and scope, all for the benefit of Granite State children, adults and seniors with disabilities and special needs.
"This new partnership makes perfect sense," said Easter Seals President & CEO Larry Gammon. "Easter Seals is one of the largest human service agencies in the Granite State, helping more than 13,000 individuals with disabilities to live, learn, work and play in the communities where Eversource delivers energy every day. Over the past three decades, Eversource employees have strongly embraced the work we do at Easter Seals NH and we are honored to partner with them in this new way."
With Eversource's support, and the addition of a new 5K running component managed by Millennium Running, the Eversource Walk With Me and 5K Run will be bigger and better than ever. Funds raised from the event will help Easter Seals continue to provide services throughout the Granite State, including: autism services, inclusive child care and early intervention, special education, medical rehabilitation, camping and recreation, vocational services, senior services, substance abuse services, adult day programs, community based services, individual service options, transportation services, residential service options, dental services and veteran services.
"Easter Seals New Hampshire shares our deep commitment to building healthy communities. With its wide-reaching presence in the Granite State, Easter Seals is truly an inspirational and life changing organization," said Bill Quinlan, President of Eversource Operations in New Hampshire. "We know this newfound partnership on the Eversource Walk With Me and 5K Run will help create increased opportunities for independence for our customers, neighbors, friends and loved ones here in New Hampshire."
