Children learn to be a friend to people with disabilities - AND help fund therapy for local kids and adults with disabilities - with the Easterseals HOP-N-ING program!

HOP dolls group

The Easterseals HOP-N-ING program is available in a FREE digital format!

Teach your students about disabilities with short videos featuring our characters: Bobby, Laura, Chloe, James, and Susie along with her service dog, Max! Links to teaching aids, suggested books, and discussion Q&A are provided for each character. These resources aid in developing students' understanding of disabilities.

HOP-N-ING helps people in our community!

As part of the HOP-N-ING program, each student hops as many times as they can within a set time. Students will receive a sponsor envelope (provided by Easterseals) to collect pledges from friends and relatives. Pledges can be either flat donations or based on the number of hops the student completes. Proceeds from returned envelopes stay local and benefit thousands of individuals served by the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.
