"Walk With Me" in bubble text with animal silhouette cutouts, presented by Prosperity Bank

The 13th annual Walk With Me Houston is less than three weeks away! Our family fun walk presented by Prosperity Bank brings together Easter Seals Greater Houston's clients, staff, donors and community supporters for a fun-filled day at the Houston Zoo. The best day to register and start fundraising is today. We're almost 60% of the way to our goal – now is the time to give to keep the momentum going and help us reach $1 million for critical disability and veteran/military-connected services!

We can't wait to see YOU at the starting line on Saturday, April 20!

Meet the faces behind the leading three Walk With Me 2024 teams raising money to support Easter Seals Greater Houston's life-changing programs!

Robert's Road Warriors

Robert Dowdell has been part of the Easter Seals Greater Houston family for many years, attending camps when he was little, serving as a Walk With Me Ambassador in 2016 and now participating in our weekly Adult Recreation Program! Robert's sister, Katie Dowdell, an Assistant Vice President at our presenting sponsor, Prosperity Bank, serves as a co-chair of Walk With Me Houston alongside Jim West, a Vice President at Prosperity Bank. Robert’s mom, Katherine, is also a long-time supporter and Easter Seals Greater Houston Board Member. With help from supporters like you, the Dowdells have already raised  $23,850 for Easter Seal Greater Houston programs, like the Adult Recreation Program, which  provides a safe environment for adults to socialize and engage in recreational activities, filling a critical gap in services often overlooked for adults with disabilities. Thank you, Dowdell family!

Quanta Services

Quanta Services joined Walk With Me Houston as an official sponsor in 2021 and has since contributed more than $215,000, not including the nearly $70,000 they’ve raised so far for Walk With Me 2024! Beyond financial support, Quanta executives and employees are always eager to meet and get to know our clients, connecting with them on a personal level. Quanta has gone the extra mile outside of Walk With Me, too, using their community partnerships to give clients once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like getting a shout-out at a Houston Astros game. Special thanks to Quanta Services’ Vice President of Information Technology, James Stinson, for co-chairing Walk With Me this year, and thank you Quanta Services!
