Easterseals Southeast Wisconsin - Walk With Me

Join us on Wednesday evening, June 28th, at the Milwaukee County Zoo for a walk with a "porpoise" and help create a world of possibilities for children and adults with disabilities! Your support of this 11th annual walk helps us provide individuals with autism and other disabilities the opportunities to live, learn, work and play in our communities. Check-in and musical entertainment by Downtown Harrison begins at 5pm at the Zoo Terrace (but you can enjoy the zoo and free parking ALL DAY on 6/28/17 with your registration!). At 6pm you'll meet the stars of the evening, our 2017 Honorary Ambassadors. The 1-mile family fun walk begins at 6:30pm then continue to enjoy the zoo or return to the Terrace for more fun with Downtown Harrison. Funds raised through this event will be used locally to fund vital programs that provide direct services for individuals with disabilities. Your support will go far beyond just one evening of walking. Together we are making a difference!
