Volleyball Challenge - About The Event
About The Event
The Easterseals / CAI Volleyball Challenge has been raising critically needed dollars for the programs and services at Easterseals Delaware & Maryland's Eastern Shore for 41 years. Over $5.5 million has been raised to date! 

This year, we would love for you to join us in impacting the lives of the people we serve by registering a team and being a part of thousands who have fundraised and/or volunteered to make this event a great success, and help raise money for Easterseals. There are several ways to get involved - you can choose to play volleyball in person, create a virtual team for fundraising, volunteer, or donate.

It is easy to get started. Gather 6 to 10 people (friends, family, or coworkers) to join your fundraising team. The registration fee is $25 per person and counts towards your fundraising goal. Each team is asked to fundraise toward a minimum goal of $1,500. That's only $150 per team member (for a team of 10 people)! These funds help people with disabilities meet milestones, attain meaningful work, remain a part of their community through day programs, independently living at home, and so much more.
