Easter Seals Week : April 4- 8, 2016 | 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
CKWS | The WS Daily
For 93 years, Easter Seals has played an important role in providing support for children and youth with physical disabilities from all ethnic and religious backgrounds.
Thanks to its generous donors, Easter Seals continues to offer programs to allow kids to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment.
Easter Seals helps by providing financial assistance for mobility equipment, communication devices and summer camp opportunities at its two properties, Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden.
Together we are helping kids BE KIDS.
For more than 3 decades, the Easter Seals Telethon has been entertaining and informing viewers. The fundraising event showcases Easter Seals families and their stories, celebrates the year’s fundraising successes, recognizes generous supporters, and raises essential funds for kids with physical disabilities.
In South Eastern Ontario, Easter Seals Week features local musical performances and is hosted by local media personalities. Easter Seals Week will air from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. during the WS Daily on CKWS from April 4-8, 2016.
