Manchester, NH, March 2, 2018
Manchester, NH – Easterseals New Hampshire and Eversource have teamed up once again to present the Eversource Walk & 5K Run for Easterseals on June 7, 2018 at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Manchester, NH. Although the event is still several months away, event organizers are hosting a special Kick-Off Breakfast on Wednesday, March 7 from 7:30-9 am at Eversource Energy in Manchester.
The Kick-Off Breakfast is open to returning team captains as well as to new individual and corporate team captains who are interested in fundraising and taking part in this event, now in its 19th year. The Walk & 5k Run will benefit Granite State children, adults and seniors with disabilities and special needs.
“Easterseals is one of the largest human service agencies in the New Hampshire, helping more than 25,100 individuals with disabilities to live, learn, work and play in the communities where Eversource delivers energy every day,” said Easterseals President & CEO Larry Gammon. “Over the past three decades, Eversource employees have strongly embraced the work we do at Easterseals NH and we are honored to partner with them on this event.”
The 2017 Eversource Walk & 5K Run attracted more than 2,500 participants and volunteers, and raised more than $220,000. The Kick-Off Breakfast will celebrate this success and begin preparing teams to outdo last year’s numbers. Funds raised from the event will help Easterseals 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.
“Eversource believes in the mission of Easterseals NH and the value that it provides to the community,” said Bill Quinlan, President of Eversource Operations in New Hampshire. “Thousands of our neighbors receive from Easterseals the support they need to attain success every day. We’re looking forward to another great event this year!”
Easterseals is also pleased to recognize NH1.com as the lead media sponsor in this year’s Eversource Walk & 5K Run and Millennium Running for overseeing the 5K component of the event.
