We were so proud of our efforts – staff, volunteer, client, donor and sponsor alike – through Walk With Me Houston 2020. AND, this year we are so excited to be able to go #hybrid. Still following all health protocols concerning Covid19 but able to have a limited amount of walkers at the Houston Zoo on April 24th AND unlimited walkers #virtually!
So for 2021, we invite you to: Walk With Me… Choose Your Route! Walk, Stroll or Roll the Block virtually from now until day of April 24th!
How it works – virtually: We encourage you to register (if you haven’t already) and walk, stroll or roll around your own block daily, weekly and/or on the event day between now and April 24th. Of course, your safety comes first, but we also know that taking in a little bit of sunshine can help all of us during this difficult time!
As you walk, stroll or roll your block, be sure to take photos or videos…or even live stream your experience and use the hashtag #WWM2021 and tag @EasterSealsGreaterHouston then encourage your friends and family to do the same to help support your (or their own) fundraising efforts.
Last year, almost 4,000 people from across the greater Houston community and the world (as far away as Rwanda!) were in attendance. With all of our options – we KNOW you can help us beat that!
Every step you take helps connect veterans, children and adults with all types of disabilities to the services they desperately need. And this year, you can count your active minutes and compete in our competitions too!
How to register:
*If you have already registered as a walker, thank you! And let’s get those steps in! *All we need is your help with spreading the word about Walk With Me Choose Your Route!
*If you’re new to our Walk With Me community, register as a virtual or on site walker here!
How to encourage your friends to continue to help you in your fundraising efforts:
- As you walk, stroll or roll your block, be sure to take photos or videos…or even live stream your experience and use the hashtag #WWM2021 and tag @EasterSealsGreaterHouston to encourage your friends and family to do the same to help support your fundraising efforts. You can even create a Facebook fundraiser to make it that much easier (you can do this while in your registered account).
- Ask friends and family to join your team, create their own teams and challenge their peer networks (Scout troops, Mother’s Day Out, faith communities, volunteer groups and more) to do the same!
- Click here for an updated email you can send to your friends and family to encourage continued donations to your virtual walker page!
