"Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take... but by what we give." Those words, spoken by Easter Seals' founder Edgar Allen over 90 years ago, began a movement. Today, we're thankful to you for being a part of that movement. With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
STRIDES FOR DISABILITY 5k Run and 3k Family Fun Walk is a dynamic celebration of diversity where the community comes together to raise awareness and funds to support Easterseals’ services. All participants will receive a t-shirt, medal, and are welcome to join us at our Partners Plaza – a unique venue with complimentary snacks and drinks, free raffles, games, giveaways, face painting for the kids, live music, photo booth, Aquarium of the Pacific discount coupons and more!
