Food, face-painting, and a lot of fundraising!

Jun 18, 2009

The rain didn’t stop the hundreds of walkers who showed up last night to support the Easter Seals Walk With Me event. And what an event it was! So many dedicated employees, family members, and friends enjoyed a fun-filled event at the John Ball Park and Zoo complete with food from Yesterdog, face-painting, and lots of fundraising.

I was a little concerned about the weather…it seems like we’ve had such beautiful sunshine for the walk in years past. Luckily, there was no down-pour just a little misting, and every walker marched on with smiles on their faces. It was so motivating to see and feel the positive energy from the crowd. The walk looped around the park and landed us right in the zoo where we got to enjoy frozen treats from Culver’s!

What a week for Amway Global and Easter Seals! Not only did the walk raise over $62,000 to help the organization, but earlier this week, some of our favorite soccer players spent some special time with kids from Easter Seals centers in California! Check out Robin’s blog for the whole story and pictures!

Aw! Me and my little friend, Ava, and her pretty pink butterfly.
