We're counting down to the 37th Annual Easter Seals Telethon.

We gathered for a luncheon to meet with our Easter Seals representatives, Hope McDowell and Christi Rolley.

Our telethon goal is again more than $1 million this year. Much of that money has been raised through various Easter Seals fundraisers. 

We gathered with sponsors today to watch the stories of Hope and Christi, something Easter Seals Spokesperson Pam Kirk says is the best part of the telethon.

"My favorite part of the telethon is always the client stories," said Kirk. "People like Hope and Christi, who are willing to come on and share their most person stories of the trials they've gone through and the accomplishments that they are reaching for with the help of Easter Seals."

This will mark the 37th year the telethon will air on WEHT Local. The telethon airs Sunday, April 13, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
