APRIL 19TH - 8TH ANNUAL KIDS FOR A BETTER FUTURE WALKATHON
Update - The 2015 Walkathon raised over $25,000 - our most successful Walk yet! Thank you all for taking part in such a crucially important cause. Stay tuned for KBF's project in 2016!
On Sunday, April 19th, 2015, Kids for a Better Future will be holding our 8th Annual Walkathon! All money raised will go towards the incredible organization Crisis Text Line. Crisis Text Line provides 24/7 free emotional support to teens in crisis through the media they know and trust best: text. It has been applauded in the pages of the New Yorker and the New York Times, among many others, for its twenty-first century method of addressing an age-old problem. Visit their website to learn more.
The Walkathon will be held in Prospect Park, at 12:30pm. Walkers will raise money through getting sponsorships and sponsorship pledges beforehand. Find more information about the Walk here.
HOW YOU CAN HELP OUT:
Walk in the walkathon, and get sponsored! And get others to do the same! Email us at email@example.com, or call us at 1-718-623-2611 to let us know you're coming! Print out sponsorship forms and walkathon fliers, and try to get sponsorships. Great way to get sponsorships and sponsorship pledges include:
-Sending out an email to your family and friends, and post on Facebook, explaining why the cause matters and asking for a sponsorship. This will take only 5-10 minutes, and you'll be surprised by how much your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles will be willing to support you in your efforts. If they live nearby, remember to invite them to come as well!
-Talking to friends, teachers - pretty much anyone you meet -about the walkathon. Keep a sponsorship form and some fliers with you at all times!
-Going to public places (parks, playgrounds, promenades, etc.) and talking to people you find! Tell them about the walkathon and what it's supporting, and ask them to give you a donation. This is a fun and effective fundraising activity to do in groups.
Sponsor a walker! This is an extremely important cause, and we hope you'll consider supporting it. Every more dollar you give is another step in helping teens get through some of the most difficult times imaginable. Either donate online or by mailing a check. (Or, if you know a walker personally, you can give them cash in person.) Thank you so much!
