The first annual Brooklyn Kids Charity Walkathon will be held on Friday, June 3 at 4:30 pm at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park. Click here to donate. This is an opportunity for elementary, middle and high-school students to participate in a local charity event and build civic spirit. Brooklyn kids doing something for other Brooklyn kids! We’re working with the student bodies in our local schools to organize this event and all donations will go to CHiPS – a local Brooklyn soup kitchen and shelter for homeless women and their children.
Families, parents and guardians are encouraged to participate, as well. Everyone will walk the top loop. After the event, you can picnic in the park, hit one of our local restaurants or head home to enjoy your Friday night plans. Students can pre-register at their school starting in May, or register on-site before the start of the event. Donations can be made on cash or check or by credit card though a link on our Civic Council website. Any amount truly helps and we’re hoping to raise $2500!! Click here to donate!
