Easterseals Southern California’s Annual Walk is celebrating 21 years of honoring diversity and inclusion!

This year is all about enjoying a safe way to spend a beautiful morning along the shoreline with family and friends while raising funds to support people with disabilities and other special needs.

We hope you will join us in Shoreline Aquatic Park in Long Beach on Saturday, October 23, 2021 for a 3K Family Fun Walk for all!

If you can't join us in Long Beach, become a virtual walker and participate in your own neighborhood


We will be observing all local and federal COVID-19 guidelines to make sure the event is as safe as it is fun. In order to ensure that everyone who attends, including our program participants and friends in the disability community, feels safe and celebrated, we are requiring every attendee who is eligible to be fully vaccinated.

  • We encourage all participants to practice hand hygiene, “social distancing” and wear face coverings while checking in for the walk and waiting at the Starting Line for the walk to begin.
  • A COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgement and Liability Waiver and Release of Claims will need to be signed by each participant (parents may sign on behalf of their children).
  • ESSC associates, vendors and volunteers working the event will be wearing face coverings.
  • To keep things as contactless as possible, shirts, bibs, snacks and other goodies (except bottled water) will be in draw-string bags handed to each guest as they check-in for the walk.
  • Hand sanitizers and disposable gloves will be available. Hand washing stations are located near the restrooms.
