Get ready to walk!

The Walk With Me season is upon us!

This month kicked off the biggest and longest-running sponsorship by Amway Global in the US. For the past 27 years, we have been supporting therapy services for children and adults with special needs through Easter Seals.

We’ve been involved in everything from national telethons to diamond digs to cause marketing that raises money for Easter Seals. Many IBOs are involved at the local level too, with some serving on the local boards of directors, and others volunteering and getting others involved.

And I’ll let you in on some news that we will be celebrating this year: with Amway Global’s renewed commitment to Walk With Me, we will reach $30 million raised for Easter Seals over the years, in partnership with IBOs and employees. That’s a huge milestone for us.

Walk With Me is the best way to get involved. There are 70 walks around the country, so more than likely there is one close to you. At the events, you typically walk with kids who are ambassadors of Easter Seals services. It’s a fun event for IBOs, who put together teams and often compete to bring in the most people.

Amway Global will be a National Presenting Sponsor at all 70 walks. We also plan to attend the walks with the greatest IBO and employee participation, including New York City on June 12, Southern California on October 9, and our headquarters community in West Michigan on June 16. We hope to see a big turnout at these walks.

You’ll hear more from us as some of these walks get closer. And if you have Easter Seals stories to share, please send them along!
