Easterseals PaceSetters

Help support the Easterseals Telethon!

YOU can help the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center's annual Telethon by becoming a PaceSetter! The PaceSetter program began in 1981 and over the years has raised more than two million dollars for therapy.

What is a PaceSetter?

A PaceSetter asks friends, family, co-workers, etc. for monetary pledges to the annual Easterseals Telethon in April. That's it! All you do is ask, fill out a pledge form, and we'll follow up to collect the pledge. See the Downloads section below for a handy letter you can use to ask for pledges that includes a printable PaceSetter pledge card.

How do I become a PaceSetter? 

We love welcoming new and returning PaceSetters each year, starting in January. If you're interested in becoming a 2020 PaceSetter, please contact Carolyn Franklin at 812-437-2607 or email

Each PaceSetter's goal is different and there's no minimum amount you have to ask for; every dollar makes a difference! 

Raise Money With a Facebook Fundraiser!
