2017 New York, NY, Walk to Feed the Hungry

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Benefiting BUDDHIST GLOBAL RELIEF

Come join us for a truly meaningful day, and share in a simple act that can make a difference to those who most need our compassion and care. When you walk with us, and share the experience with friends and family, you shine a light on the hunger and poverty that exist all over the world, and in New York City. This year, the funds we raise through our NYC Walk will go towards our programs in Cambodia, Haiti and India. Donations will also help our Partners here in NYC. They do so much to fight the hunger that continues to plague our city. With your help, they can do more.

And if you'd like to volunteer, please email ny_walk@buddhistglobalrelief.org.

The Walk will proceed even in inclement weather. We suggest you bring an umbrella and/or raincoat as well, just in case it rains. Having a hat or cap too would be good too, in the event if gets windy.
