Strides for Disability, Easterseals Southern California’s annual 5k Run/Walk and 3k Family Fun Walk honors diversity, promotes inclusion, and shows what disability means today. This unifying and spirited event brings together a diverse group of people – with and without disabilities – to break down barriers and show what’s possible with the right access, opportunities and supports. Together, we celebrate the strides we’re taking to change the way the world defines and views disability while making positive, meaningful differences in people’s lives.
As we prepare for race day, joining of teams, creating teams and all promo codes/discounts will expire on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 5:00pm. Only individual registrations will be accepted.
