Walk, Run, Roll With Me

Annual Charity Walk, Run, and Roll Event!

Easterseals Oregon is proud to present our annual charity walk, run, and roll event to raise funds for our programs across the state.

Join us on August 27th for the 2022 Easterseals Oregon Walk, Run & Roll Challenge!

Several walkers at the live event, walking through the finish line at the Oregon Zoo. They are dressed in matching, colorful costumes that include a tutu.This is a very special opportunity to walk, run, or roll through the Oregon Zoo before it opens to the public. Participate directly in a tangible, fun, and meaningful way along with people of all ages and abilities to make an impact in building a more inclusive, equitable society for all. Walk, Run, and Roll is a collective opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of children, families, adults, and veterans impacted by disability and to raise $100,000 to serve even more of those in need. Following the challenge, join us for an After-Party with great live music, a delicious hot breakfast, a fun Awards Presentation, a Live & Silent Auction and more!
