Easterseals Southern California (ESSC), a nonprofit that provides disability services to more than 13,000 local people, will host the annual Strides for Disability 5K Run/Walk and 3K Family Fun Walk. This festive run/walk is a celebration of the strides the disability community has made to help change the way the world defines disability, and in shaping a future where people of all abilities feel 100% included and 100% empowered. This year, the event will be especially celebratory as it recognizes 100 years of Easterseals’ disability services. All participants receive a t-shirt, medal and access to the event’s Partners Plaza featuring complimentary snacks, games, giveaways, photo booth, Aquarium of the Pacific discount coupons and more. Participants will also be treated to special performances by John W. Lawson (“American Horror Story,” “Law & Order,” “Super”) who will be singing the national anthem; and special guest, singer-songwriter Tiana Kocher, who will be performing songs from her debut record “Just My Type,” which hit the Top 40 Indie Chart.
