Thanks to the support of local Easter Seals families, community sponsors and volunteers, the Easter Seals first annual Walk With Me Delmarva was a huge success, raising more than $26,000 so far. More than 280 people participated in the walk which featured local families served by Easter Seals.

Special honors go to the top team, Team Spencer, for raising $2,245. Team captain Spencer Kane of Seaford was one of the Walk With Me ambassadors this year. His team included 46 walkers!

From the families we serve, to the corporate sponsors, to the volunteers, including our Sussex County Advisory Board, I would like to thank the community for tits hard work and dedication to supporting people with disabilities. We are looking forward to an even bigger event next year.

Top sponsors include: Baywood Greens, Charlie & Sandy Zeiler, Pot-Nets Communities, Sussex County Federal Credit Union, Jefferson, Urian, Doane & Sterner PA CPA’s, Nickle Electrical Companies and Grotto Pizza.
