PHILADELPHIA, PA, May 29, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On June 5th, Easterseals will host the 18th Annual Walk With Me event at the Philadelphia Zoo. The Walk is Easterseals single largest fundraising event, which raises over $100,000 annually to support local programs and services. That support includes helping Easterseals to quickly transition to online services quickly during the pandemic. For those that would like the option, the event also features the option to participate virtually.
The Walk has always featured Honorary Ambassadors as part of the event. The Ambassadors are clients who share their stories of success and increased independence with the support of Easterseals programs and services. You can learn more about the Ambassadors through short videos featuring the Ambassadors and their families here.
Participants can register for Walk With Me at www.WalkWithMe.org/Philadelphia. Registration for the Zoo is $35 and virtual participation is $20, children 12 and under can participate at no cost. Virtual participants will have access to a special behind the scenes guided tour of the zoo.
The Walk, sponsored by Century 21 Advantage Gold helps fund local programs and services. Last year, through community support, Easterseals was able to quickly provide virtual services to ensure continued success for the children who receive services. It has also helped create a safe transition back to center based services for both staff and students.

Program and services include, but are not limited to, Approved Private School, Early Intervention, physical, occupational and speech therapies and assistive technology.
