Hundreds participate in 'Walk With Me' to support individuals with disabilities

HOUSTON - Nearly 3,000 people participated in the Easter Seals Greater Houston's Walk With Me to support children and adults with disabilities. 

The family-friendly 5K took place at the Houston Zoo on Saturday, April 29 and helped raise almost $500,000 with many individuals walking in teams. 

Kevin Johnson, a cornerback for the Houston Texans, was the event's emcee. Sponsors included Prosperity Bank, The Robert and Janice McNair Foundation, Texas Children's Hospital, John Eagle Honda and the Hess Corporation. 

There were plenty of smiles as participants walked through the zoo.
