See how the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center changes lives — and how you can help by watching the 2021 Easterseals Telethon on ABC 25 Sunday, July 18, 12 (noon)-6pm!
For the 44th consecutive year, ABC 25 will donate 100% of production and air time. This exceptional commitment allows all pledges to fund life-changing therapy services!
The therapy gym at 3701 Bellemeade Ave. will become a TV studio for the live show and viewers will meet local people with disabilities who are achieving goals for independence. The Telethon will be hosted by several of the familiar faces you see each week from Eyewitness News: Brad Byrd, Brandon Bartlett, Jake Boswell, Gretchen Ross, Ron Rhodes, Shelley Kirk, and Wayne Hart!
E'ville Iron Street Rod Club will once again host their outdoor cruise-in from noon-4pm (CDT) during the Telethon. Stop by to view beautiful cars, participate in games, and grab some lunch when you donate at the fishbowl!
Generous area businesses will match ALL pledges made during the show! Make your pledge during the 2021 Easterseals Telethon on ABC 25 and you'll help us change lives for almost 5,000 Tri-State kids and adults with disabilities.
We are very excited to once again bring this event to the community. This year's Telethon was moved from spring to July in a continued effort to help slow the spread of the pandemic while bringing the Tri-State a safe Telethon. For that reason, the general public will not have access inside the building during this year's Telethon.
Stay tuned for more details!
