Walk With Me supports Easter Seals


Round up your friends, lace up your sneakers and mark your calendars for the 11th annual Walk With Me Rhode Island carnival and family fun walk on Saturday, May 18 at Goddard Memorial State Park, located at 1095 Ives Road in Warwick.

This year’s Walk With Me begins with registration at 9 a.m., and the Walk officially starts at 10, rain or shine. All walkers will be partnered with an Easter Seals Honorary Ambassador, a child with a disability who has benefited from Easter Seals services. There will be something for everyone after you take a stroll in the park at the post-walk celebration at 11.

Walk as an individual or form a team and share the experience. Many supporters have joined the walk, including national sponsors CVS/pharmacy, Century 21, Amway, Mass Mutual, and local sponsors AC Moore, Dunkin’ Donuts, Pepsi, Kellogg’s, Pawtucket Red Sox, Raymour & Flanigan, Cabot, Coast 93.3 FM, Southern RI Newspapers, Staples, Subway and Willow Tree Poultry Farm.

“Support from individuals and businesses, as well as our sponsors, is critical to our ability to serve more than 400 children with disabilities and special needs,” said Judy Fortier, Easter Seals RI director of development.
