2013 Easter Seals Walk at The Crossing

A little bit of rain did not put a damper on the Easter Seals annual "Walk With Me" fundraiser on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at The Crossings of Colonie.

For this year's celebratory Easter Seals walk fundraiser, we were able to help set the atmosphere by playing a a mix of classic throwbacks and today's modern hits. Sponsors such as CVS, Corporate Wellness Solutions, Albany Massage Therapy Association, Aflac, and Bub Kat Bounce, Resultz Zumba among others all threw into the hat for this great cause.

Even though there was a bit of rain, that did not stop our walkers!  Upon posting this article, a showing of $14,834.16 was raised in donations, and more pledges are still coming.

The Crossings of Colonie's Southern Pavilion of Loudonville put the perfect backdrop on the start of the two and a half mile "Family Fun Walk."  Even though there was a bit of rain that had me off and hiding equipment from the clouds above, the water held out until just in time.  The opening ceremonies and all activities went off without a hitch before the air horn sounded.

When the rain finally did come, our walkers were already out and about walking the loop and it didn't matter. And as fate would have it, the rain stopped in plenty of time for the walkers to enjoy more festivities upon crossing the finish line.

Donations help to benefit great programs like Camp Colonie, a summer camp that provides a supportive and supervised program for individuals with physical, developmental, or emotional disabilities as well as typically developing children and young adults. 

If interested in the summer camp or taking part in next year's walk, please contact Chuck Paravella, Camp Director, at (518) 222-3932 with any questions. See you next year!
