This was the sentiment as we took in the Easter Seals Walk With Me event in New York last week. Standing across the street from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, there was an electric buzz in the air.

Amway Independent Business Owners (IBOs) filled the park – from full-time leaders of massive international networks to second generation up-and-comers, to new entrants into the business.

Yet they weren’t the only element that made this walk a special mix. The children and families who benefit from Easter Seals services were right there with us, meeting IBOs, trying Amway products, and getting autographs from Miss America.

Before the walk kicked off, there was a moment of silence for Bill Britt, who passed away earlier this year. Bill and Peggy Britt are among the highest achieving Amway leaders in the world, and they helped to inspire many leaders in their network to support Easter Seals over a 30 year partnership that has raised more than $32 million for children and families, much of it from local community efforts like those in the New York area.

To kick off the walk, the Britt team presented a check for $50,000 that was raised for this event (the event would net $225,000 overall). This was heaped on top of another $50,000 that the Britt team gave at the annual Paving the Way black-tie gala the week before.

Fresh off a visit to the Easter Seals Bronx Child Development Center earlier in the day, the event brought home the importance of these gatherings, and how in the end, the benefit we receive outweighs the investment we make.

Thanks to the Britts, the Galas, the Nardones, the Pappalardos, the Pavlides, the Callendars, the Melillos… and the many other IBO leaders who invited us into this special community of Easter Seals supporters in New York. Click here for more photos.
