Terri Fukamaki and James Walker

When she was 15 years old, Terri Fukamaki began volunteering at ECF as part of Dorsey High School’s community service program. After graduation, she co-founded a support group for ECF, where she was later joined by her husband, James Walker. She and James worked together on many ECF events, including summer camps, Special Olympics, a Beach Ride motorcycle event, a 5K-10K run, bowling events, fashion shows and golf tournaments. James also served on the ECF board for nine years.

Terri’s service inspired her parents, Dale and Toni, to became involved with ECF, with Dale eventually serving on ECF’s board of directors. The “First Ever” Golf Benefit, created in 1982 by Dale with the support of his family and friends, is one of the longest-running charity golf tournaments in Southern California. After the deaths of Dale (1999) and Toni (2011), the Fukamaki and Walker families have continued to support the tournament as a way to honor their parents’ dedication to improving the lives of people with special needs.
