Walking for Easter Seals in the Big Apple

Jul 09, 2010

We had a fantastic turnout for the Easter Seals walk in New York City. It’s amazing to see Amway IBOs, corporate leaders, Easter Seals advocates and clients, all coming together in Battery Park, with the Stature of Liberty watching over everyone.

This walk has one of the highest participation rates of Amway Global people in the country – it only follows the walk in Amway’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In fact, this walk has been very successful in raising money for the cause. More than $1 million has been given to the local Easter Seals through the New York Walk With Me event since 2002.

Amway Global executive Lisa Hunter attended and helped to kick off the walk. Adriane Land, who manages recognition programs and communications was on hand as well.

Kanti and Lati Gala also helped to lead the walk. The Gala’s have been longtime supporters of Easter Seals, and were recognized at the annual dinner last year.

It was a beautiful day and a beautiful walk. You can see some pictures of the event below.

If you are participating in an Easter Seals walk in your town (there are 70 across the country – all sponsored by Amway Global), please let us know and send us some pictures to post.

This year, we celebrate $30 million raised for Easter Seals by Amway and its employees and Independent Business Owners over our 27 year partnership.

Thanks to all of you who turn out to help improve the lives of children and adults with special needs!
