Easter Seals Telethon This Sunday on WTRF CBS


The Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center was founded in Wheeling in 1937 as the Wheeling Society for Crippled Children. It serves 3,000 children a year, with a wide range of challenges.

Easter Seals officials say they see kids with autism and ADHD, Down Syndrome, and cerebral palsy.

The telethon this year will be hosted by Scott Nolte and Brenda Danehart of 7News, and Jim Connor of The Mix 97.3.

Easter Seals officials hope you tune in for two reasons:

Of course, to raise funds for children to receive treatment and to learn to understand the young people in your own community and the challenges they face.

Independence for a kid with autism is going to be different than independence for a kid with low muscle tone. So there’s a huge spectrum of kids that we’re serving and helping them to be the best kids that they can be.

The telethon is 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, April 19 on WTRF CBS.
