Walkathon

 

Health and Wellness Walk-a-Thon + Block Party for Girls’ and Women’s Health

Saturday, May 5, 2018 • 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Walkathon Start: 12pm at 402 E 8th Street • Walkathon End: 1pm at 8th Street between Avenue C and D

 

THE DETAILS:

We will start the day by providing wellness workshops for our members and their mentors. At 12pm, the Walk-A-Thon will kick off at 402 East 8th Street, featuring the Brooklyn Express Drumline and wind through the Lower East Side and East Village. Along the way, we’ll pass through the East River and Tompkins Square Parks. We will be dancing down Avenue A, B, & C to the beat of the incredible Brooklyn Express Drumline! At the finish line will be our Health & Wellness Fair and Block Party at The Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community on Avenue D and 8th Street.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:

Sign up to join a team or be a Team Captain! Angel Alliance members and partners have established teams. Each team member raises a minimum of $100 through small donations from friends, coworkers and family ($10–20 per backer), raising $500–$1000 (or more) to supporting our health and wellness initiatives. Some call it micro-philanthropy, we call it LOVE!
