Fundraising activities are cen- tered around an event called Walk With Me, a handicapped- accessible, three-mile walk at Baywood Greens Golf Club in Long Neck, scheduled - rain or shine - for Sunday, Oct. 13. The kickoff was centered on a carnival theme, complete with popcorn, balloons and door priz- es at the Easter Seals offices irr Georgetown, where organizers explained how the funds raised would help pay for assistive tech- nology devices and the services of physical, occupational and speech therapists. Easter Seals Community Rela- tions Director Leslie Gale said she is currently in the process of signing up teams for the walk and looking for captains to help organize and build teams. The registration fee is $20, and participants receive a T-shirt and refreshments at the event, while additional fundraising for the event is accomplished through collecting individual and team sponsorships for the walk. "It's about creating awareness about Easter Seals with your friends, family and colleagues," EASTER SEALS ORGANIZERS kicked off their Walk With Me fundraiser with a carnival-themed luncheon; shown are (I-r) Leslie Gale, Shirley Eskridge, Matthew Hickman and Milt Warren, Easter Seals directors and participants• SUSSEX COUNTY FAMILY HOSTS BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT SUBMITTED PHOTO THE SECOND ANNUAL Vera '!Polly" Horsey-Hitchens BasketballTour- nament was held June 8 at Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary School in Laurel.

Easter Seals Ambassador Cin- dy Starobynski participates in the adult day program at Easter Seals offices in Georgetown and is also serving as team captain for her team, which she has named Hot Wheels. Born with spina bifida, Starobynski said she has not been able to walk since she was 5 years old. When she started at Easter Seals, the ambassador said she wanted to walk again. Now, nearly 30 years since she took her last steps, the ambas- sador said she can walk short distances with a walker and has a better quality of life with the camaraderie she shares at Easter Seals. "Within the word impossible is possible," she said. "So anything is possible if you keep at it." lust last year, Easter Seals representative Ford Waggoner said the organization helped 601 children in Georgetown and 83 adults in the day program. Across the peninsula, Wag- goner said, Easter Seals served almost 2,000 residents last year, helping them overcome physi- cal and mental disabilities to live more independent, fulfilling lives. With more than $4,000 already raised for the Walk With Me campaign, Easter Seals Advisory. Board member Milt Warren said he's optimistic about the fund- raiser's success. "Since we've already raised about half of our goal of $10,000, and this is just the kickoff," War- ren said, "I don't see why we can't surpass that goal."
