Long Neck, DE Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore invites the public to join them for their annual Walk With Me & 5K Run Delmarva event on October 22, 2023. The event will unite hundreds of families and supporters in lower Delaware and along Maryland’s Eastern Shore to raise funds for Easterseals services in order to impact the lives of local individuals, like Walk With Me Ambassador Wayne Smith, and families living with disabilities.

“We are excited to celebrate over ten years of fundraising at our Delmarva event. We are looking forward to seeing many smiling faces at this year’s events. We hope to make this a record-breaking year,” Missy Baker, Special Events Coordinator, said. “The event raises money to support local people with disabilities and their families served by Easterseals programs. We hope to see you there!”

Not only will walkers share the company of event ambassador, Wayne, who receives services from Easterseals, they will also be serenaded by Elvis, aka Bob Lougheed. There will be wildlife from the Barn Hill Animal Preserve, a fire truck, rock painting, refreshments, and trick-or-treating (for kids 12 years and under).

Funds raised through Walk With Me help Easterseals provide critically needed services to families living with disabilities in our local community. Registration for this year’s Walk With Me event is available at For more information, contact Missy Baker at
