Please join the Kids for a Better Future for their10th Annual Walkathon!
All funds raised will support Coalition for the Homeless.
The Walk will be on Saturday May 6th at 12:30pm, rain or shine!
The entire walk is once around the Park Drive Loop in Prospect Park, which is 3.35 miles. (The walk is quite slow – it’s easy even for small children, and strollers are allowed.)
Meeting time is 12:30pm Saturday May 6th, in Prospect Park on the Park Drive Loop at 9th Street. Enter Prospect Park at 9th street and walk straight ahead until you meet the loop. The Walk will begin at 1pm sharp. All money raised will support the services provided by the organization Coalition for the Homeless.
More than 62,000 people currently sleep in New York City shelters each night, representing a 79 percent increase in the demand for shelter over the past decade. About a third of the people living in NYC shelters are children. KBF is supporting Coalition for the Homeless because we believe that every kid deserves a home!
How to help out:
1) Email KBF organizer Satya Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are walking and collecting sponsors, or call at 718-623-2611. You can also email us through our website.
2) Get your family and friends to sponsor you. Tell your parents, grandparents, family friends, etc. about this wonderful cause, and ask them to support your effort.
- Pressed for time? Send an email to 10 relatives and close family friends asking them to consider sponsoring you (flip this page for donation information). It’ll take under 15 minutes, and we know from experience how effective it is!
3) Spread the word! Ask other people – friends, siblings, parents, family friends – to come!
So get started! Try and raise at least $500 from your family and friends—you can do it! And try to bring at least three other people to the walk with you. It’ll be lots of fun – and what’s better than a Saturday afternoon walk in the park with friends?
