CVS Caremark Employees Raise $1 Million and Increase Awareness for Children with Disabilities through Easter Seals Walk With Me Events Nationwide
Date:6/20/2008

WOONSOCKET, R.I., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, thousands of CVS Caremark associates across the country will participate in Easter Seals Walk With Me events as part of the CVS Caremark All Kids Can(TM) program, one of the country's largest corporate commitments to children with disabilities. Easter Seals was selected as an All Kids Can national partner when the company introduced the program in 2006.

Since 2006, CVS Caremark and its private foundation have contributed more than $4 million to Easter Seals, including CVS Caremark All Kids Can Fund gifts to support Easter Seals autism services, and a commitment to Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago's Therapeutic Day School and Center for Autism Research, scheduled to open this fall. Additionally, each year CVS Caremark has been a valued sponsor for Easter Seals Walk With Me events and employee teams have shown their support through Walk With Me pledges and local Easter Seals fundraisers.

Since 2006, some 7,000 CVS Caremark employees have raised more than $1 million through walks for local Easter Seals affiliates.
