At Easterseals Oregon, we know that building opportunities for people with disabilities involves a lot of hard work; but having fun can be a part of the process, too! That's why we host multiple annual events that create family-fun opportunities while helping fund our imperative services for marginalized communities across the state.
It's a win-win - you and your family get to have fun, and we get to keep building opportunities for Oregonians to experience equity, inclusion, and fulfilment of their fullest potential!
This joyous Spring fundraiser has been an Easterseals Oregon tradition for over 30 years. Every year, you can join us during Easter Week to buy locally-gown tulips from Wooden Shoe Tulip farm to benefit the crucial services we provide to communities across the state. Our tulips make the perfect gift for family, friends, employees, and just about anyone else; and the Easterser Bunny himself has been known to make an occasional appearance at this bright and colorful family event.
Easterseals Oregon has partnered with Tires Les Schwab to host an annual golf tournament to support our inclusive Summer Camp Program for children and adults with disabilities. Funds raised by the golf tournament are used in a scholarship program to give opportunities to campers who cannot afford the cost of attendance.
Though the tournament for 2021 was cancelled due to COVID-19, we look forward to resuming this staple Easterseals Oregon tradition in 2022!
Walk, Run, & Roll With Me
One of the younger annual traditions that has been off to a wonderful start is the charity 5k Walk, Run, & Roll event. This family-friendly event includes a 1-mile walk & roll loop along with a 5k run & roll course inside the Oregon Zoo. Our first annual occurence of the event in 2021 set the bar high, with the inclusion of live music, free icecream and coffee, costumes, and of course zoo animals!
