Get Involved and Support Easterseals!

Helping people with disabilities and special needs is what we do at Easterseals, but we can't do it alone. We provide our services regardless of a family's ability to pay, which results in more than $400,000 in uncompensated care annually. Throughout the year, our many community partners and friends help us raise funds to support children who live in our local communities.

One way to get involved is by participating in an Easterseals special event.

3rd Annual Inclusion on Ice 

Easterseals and Augusta Levy once again are partnering with the Wheeling Nailers to host an afternoon of ice skating and activities at the J.B. Chambers Memorial Ice Rink at Wheeling Park. The event also includes a sled hockey exhibition game between the Mighty Penguins and a team made up of Wheeling Nailers and Lightningbirds players. New this year is a community resource fair and a player Q&A. Everyoen of all abilities is welcome. Thanks to our generous sponsors, everything is free! For more information, visit our Facebook event page. 

Kalkreuth Charities Golf Events

The Kalkreuth Amateur Golf Championship is a longstanding tradition in the Ohio Valley and the premier amateur golf tournament in the tri-state area, hosting nearly 300 golfers each year. Along with the Kalkreuth Vendor Invitational, this tournament generates the support of many of Kalkreuth’s valued vendor partners from across the country. A portion of the proceeds from these events contributes to an annual donation to Easterseals.

Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta

The Wheeling Vintage Raceboat Regatta takes place during Labor Day weekend and features wooden hydroplanes and race boats tearing up and down the Ohio River at Heritage Port. The event is free to attend but serves as a fundraiser for Easterseals each year. Easterseals coordinates a basket raffle and children's activities each year. 

Ride with Pride

Easterseals hosts the Ride with Pride equine therapy program out of both our Parkersburg and Wheeling offices. The program features fun exercises to improve posture, stretching, coordination, and focus. Volunteers are needed at each session in the Wheeling Ride With Pride to be side-walkers and horse handlers, as well as other responsibilities.
