Due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to alter the format of our Annual Eversource Walk & 5K Run for Easterseals. Please see below for how you can still participate and support this year's event!
Join us on our VIRTUAL Race Weekend!
June 4 - 6, 2021
Powered by Hope & Help!
Through this difficult year, we all faced changes both personally and professionally, large and small. But one thing that has not changed was Easterseals’ commitment to ensuring our clients, of all ages and needs, continued to receive our services. We believe helping others despite the odds breeds hope, and we hope you will not only let others know why you are walking or running for Easterseals but also invite them to join you!
Our friends at Millennium Running have once again stepped up to assist us on this virtual journey. Thank you, MILLENNIUM RUNNING!
Here's what you need to know:
Online registration is OPEN! Registration is $15/participant. New this year: Shirts may be purchased upon registration for an additional gift to Easterseals.
You can still create a team, and we encourage you to recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to make it more fun for you, especially since we can't all be together!
We will provide a printable bib number so you can wear it while you complete your 5K. We highly encourage you to take photos of yourself, your team, and your journey and share them with us, as well as post them on your own social networks using #eswalk.
As we get closer to event day, we will provide a sign you can print and fill out to honor the person or people you're walking tor.
Millennium will provide a platform to which you can submit your timing results so they are properly tracked for the event.
All participants who submit a time will receive a Finisher certificate via email with your posted time and rank.

This event is part of our Easterseals and Veterans Count Race Series! Complete 3 out of the 5 Easterseals NH and Veterans Count 5K races and you will earn yourself a sweet piece of swag: a North Face jacket! All races are family-friendly and open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The Race Series, presented by BAE Systems, benefits programs and services provided by Easterseals NH and Veterans Count. It's a great way to get outside this spring and summer!
While it is not required, we do encourage each participant to fundraise to support the thousands of clients served through Easterseals' core programs. Participants that raise $100 or more will receive an event shirt, and those that raise $250 or more will receive an event shirt and an Easterseals travel blanket. Additional fundraising prize incentives are also available. The $15 registration fee counts towards your fundraising goal!
Now more than ever Easterseals clients and families need the support of the community to rally behind the importance of our mission, and we hope we can continue to count on you to be part of our success in this GREAT event!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Christine.
