There was a lot of walking going on Saturday as hundreds came out to the Easter Seals New York's 7th annual "Walk With Me" at Genesee Valley Park.

All the money raised goes to make a difference in the lives of people living with disabilities in our community.

News10NBC's Nikki Rudd was the co-chair of this year's walk.

News10NBC spoke with the other co-chair about how the Easter Seals has made a difference in his life, and also spoke with one of the honorary chairs, Dillon Weaver.

“Makes a difference in my life, changed my life around, put me on the right path,” said Weaver.

“My son is a resident of the Chili IRA and he has been for 8 or 9 years. Easter Seals has been a life saver for him,” said co-chair Jack Eisenberg.

The walkers enjoyed a post-walk party and cookout after strolling around the park.
