ITP was a proud silver sponsor of the Easterseals Southeast WI ‘Walk with Me’ event that took place on June 28th at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Easterseals provides many resources for people and families challenged by disability. They are committed to changing the way the world defines and views disability by making a difference in people’s lives every day. The work that they do has redefined disability for the 21st century.
Before the walk began, five of the Easterseals’ ambassadors spoke at the event to highlight a few of their services. They specifically touched on Autism Services, Safe Babies, and the Workforce Training Program. See all of the great programs Easterseals Southeas Wisconsin offers the community, here.
Eight of our team members walked with a “porpoise” at this event, taking on disabilities together. Everyone who participated in this 1 mile family fun walk made a profound, and positive impact on the lives of those living with disabilities.
Overall, the event was a huge success, raising over $80,000! All proceeds will go towards funding vital programs that provide direct services for individuals living with disabilities. These programs give children and adults the opportunities to learn, work, and play in their communities.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support this great cause. Each step of the way you made a huge difference that will last a lifetime. One short mile goes a long way!
