Garfield, New Jersey (Grassroots Newswire) 7/30/10 -- CENTURY 21 JR Gold Team Realty announced today that in an ongoing effort to help raise awareness and funds to support Easter Seals New Jersey, it will sponsor the area’s annual Walk With Me fundraising event scheduled to take place on 08/22/2010 at Roosevelt Park, Edison NJ. The daylong event is one of more than 68 similar events being held in communities across the country this year.
“The Walk With Me event is a great way to engage the many families and social organizations in the area with Easter Seals New Jersey and all of the services and resources they provide our community in an effort to empower people with disabilities to live fuller, more independent lives,” said Johnny Rojas, broker/owner of CENTURY 21 JR Gold Team Realty.
Individuals, families and other social groups can help CENTURY 21 JR Gold Team Realty and Easter Seals New Jersey by visiting www.walkwithme.org/century21, the official CENTURY 21 Walk With Me Web site. This site provides detailed information about the Roosevelt Park, Edison NJ event and how to register a fundraising team, join an existing team, register as an individual or support a friend or family member already registered.
Community members of all ages will gather at Roosevelt Park, Edison NJ to walk or run three or five miles. Each Walk With Me participant is partnered with an Easter Seals Honorary Team Captain, an adult or child with a disability who has directly benefited from Easter Seals New Jersey programs. Funds raised from the event support Easter Seals programs in the New Jersey community including autism.
“Participating in Walk With Me is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with Easter Seals New Jersey, which has served our community for more than/nearly 6 years, helping to make a difference in the lives of family, friends and neighbors with disabilities,” said Preethi Kumar, director for EASTER SEALS New Jersey. “Time and time again, CENTURY 21 JR Gold Team Realty has answered our call for help and together with the members of this community, we will make our Walk With Me event a huge success.”
After the walk, fellow participants will meet and celebrate their accomplishment at the Walk With Me Family Festival -- a post-event party featuring complimentary food, entertainment and prizes!
The CENTURY 21 System has been a proud supporter of Easter Seals for more than 30 years and has since raised more than $100 million to help provide opportunities for people with disabilities to live with equality, dignity and independence.
