Why Walk?

1 in 6 babies born in the U.S. has a developmental delay or disability

Chances are you, your neighbor, friend or co-worker has a personal connection with someone who is struggling with a disability, and they need us to help guide them through. Your participation in Walk With Me will help ensure people with all types of disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Through Early Childhood Intervention, camps, education, therapy, training, technoloy and many more support services, Easter Seals is able to provide help, hope, and answers to over 10,000 families living with disabilities in the Greater Houston area each year. This would not be possible without assistance from community supporters like you! Join us in taking on #DisabilityTogether!


Your support provides hope for children like Melody

At 11 weeks of pregnancy, Melody's mom received a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis. This was just the beginning, as there were many complications throughout her entire pregnancy. Several times during pregnancy they came close to losing Melody, but miraculously she pulled through each time. Right after leaving the NICU, Melody's parents reached out to Easter Seals' Early Childhood Intervention program to schedule an evaluation. Shortly after, she started receiving both physical and occupational therapy from well-trained therapists at Easter Seals to help her develop. Melody is now able to walk, climb and feed herself. She gives enormous hugs all day long, wave's hello and goodbye, drinks out of a big girl cup, has learned how to fake laugh, blows the sweetest kisses, claps her darling, square shaped, little hands and says "Yay", along with several other words. Working alongside Easter Seals' therapists watching Melody meet milestone after milestone has been a life-changing experience for the family.

Your provision helps families like Melody's overcome the daily challenges that come along with having a disability. You provide hope for their future. You are the key to their success. With your support, we are able to take on #DisabilityTogether.
