WALK WITH ME Times Three

This past month we held the first of our three Walk With Me events. It started out as a dreary, rainy day, but the laughter and enthusiasm were contagious and brightened the day. It was drizzling at Walk kickoff but by the After-Walk Celebration and Awards Ceremony, it was clear skies. This was the 22nd year for the Pittsburgh Walk. Over the years Individual walkers and teams have joined other passionate people for a morning filled with entertainment, fun and of course, our signature walk! Each participant's motivation to walk is unique; it may be for themselves, a child of a loved one, a neighbor or a colleague. There’s two more Walks to go this year - see the information below on the State College Walk. There's still time to donate to the Pittsburgh Walk!

A Can't Miss - Club Lily

Any time is a great time to talk about one of our camp programs – Club Lily. Easterseals Western and Central PA’s Club Lily program is a camp opportunity specifically for adults, 18 and up, with any disability/special need. And, when we say 18 and up, we mean it! Our oldest camper in 2018 was 77; proving that you are never too old to enjoy the fun of camp. How can you not have fun when there is wall climbing, zip lining, boating, fishing, arts and crafts, games, sports, pool time, campfires, special evening activities and more.
