Join Karl Nelsen and Soren Roe on September 17, 2023 for a unique on-site and virtual walk, starting from the iconic Lincoln Memorial and ending at the historic Capitol Building in Washington D.C. This walk will KICK OFF our time in D.C. to advocate for the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act (ELSA).

Karl & Soren will be on Facebook Live streaming this walk. Please, wear your NFED gear, ELSA gear, or your organization’s gear to create awareness. Let’s have some fun!

If that Sunday night does not work for you, please choose another date in September to have your walk in support of ELSA. Thank you!

We encourage participants to document their experience by sharing photos and videos on the ELSA Walk to the Capitol Building Facebook event page. You can also email them to Lea Richardson at

We kindly ask that all walkers solicit sponsorships and/or donations for walking. You can also text DC2023 to 91999 for more details.
