Road trip: Milwaukee or bust
Posted on July 16th, 2012 by Rachel
I love my job at Easter Seals headquarters office in Chicago. The one thing we can miss out on at headquarters, though — unlike the thousands of affiliate staff across the country — is daily interaction with the families we serve. After all, that’s truly what we’re all about.
So when we got the chance to work with WGN-TV in Chicago to develop a few segments and a public service announcement about our client families, services, and Walk With Me signature event — we jumped on it and literally hit the road. One hundred miles north to Milwaukee, to be exact: we went to the Walk With Me event put on by Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin!
WGN-TV shot some awesome footage of the event with the beautiful scenery of Lake Michigan in the background, and the best part was catching up with Easter Seals 2011 Child Representative Kyle Mayer. Kyle and his family were all clad in neon green Walk shirts — Way to represent Easter Seals!
And did I mention all of this happened in the middle of Milwaukee’s Polish fest? What a fun, out-of–the-office day for us headquarters staffers!
