The 8th annual Easter Walk & Roll to benefit Easter Seals Nevada strolls into Las Vegas this Spring with a new location and a new look.
This awareness walk will kick off a day of family fun and fundraising on Saturday, March 26 at Lorenzi Park (3343 W. Washington Ave. Las Vegas). The Easter Walk & Roll directly funds critical programs for Nevada residents living with disabilities.
Beginning at 9 a.m., Easter Walk & Roll participants, including community leaders, honorary ambassadors and celebrities, will participate in a half-mile walk to raise awareness of Easter Seals Nevada’s programs, which help the 8,000 Nevada residents living with disabilities lead more independent and fulfilling lives. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and is $35 for adults and $20 for kids, seniors, military and virtual walkers.
The finale of the Easter Walk & Roll will lead into an Easter Carnival extravaganza beginning at 10 a.m., where all funds raised will go to further assisting Nevada residents with disabilities. The Easter Carnival will feature games, entertainment, concessions, a petting zoo, pony rides and face painting, creating an unforgettable afternoon with family and friends while also helping others. Easter egg hunts will be held for kids, along with pictures with the Easter Bunny and other family-friendly activities. Adults can also join the fun with a special Easter egg hunt with fun prizes including show tickets, restaurant certificates and more. The event will also feature an array of food trucks, vendors and live performances by some of Las Vegas’ best in rock and R&B.
“Our annual Walk is one of our most important fundraising events of the year to build and strengthen Easter Seals Nevada’s mission to support Nevadans in need of assistance,” said President and CEO of Easter Seals Nevada Brian Patchett. “We are excited about the event changes for 2016 that encourage more and more people to attend this family fun-filled day that that ensures the best quality of life is given to children and adults with disabilities and their families in Nevada.”
