Downers Grove, Ill. (May 8, 2017) – The South East Association for Special Parks And Recreation (SEASPAR) is hosting its 17th annual Walk and Roll-A-Thon fundraiser on Sunday, May 21, 2017. The event will take place at Ebersold Park in Downers Grove from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Participants will collect pledges for each lap completed around the half-mile course at Ebersold Park, located at the corner of 59th and Main Streets in Downers Grove. This all-ages event welcomes walkers, runners, wheelchairs, rollerblades, strollers, and leashed dogs. Refreshments will be served, and all participants receive a t-shirt.
