4 Mile Riverside Park Walk
RAIN OR SHINE
Join us NYC for a wonderful mix of Friends, Dharma, and Right Cause!
The NYC Walk to Feed the Hungry will begin at the North Lawn. Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, BGR Chairperson, will be our Walk Leader. This year we will enjoy walking a few city blocks to end the walk at Holy Trinity Church where a free sponsored lunch will be served. You also have the option of a 3.5 mile walk if you choose not to join us for lunch, but instead end your walk where it began. The pre-walk Moving Meditation has been quite popular in the past two years, so come early and join in if you can! We look forward to seeing you.
START: North Lawn (enter at W. 79th or W. 80th St. and Riverside Dr.)
END: Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, 213 W. 82nd St.
9:00 am: Wake up with 8-Form Moving Meditation (until 9:45 am)
9:15 am: Check-in begins
10:00 am: Walk begins
11:45 am: Lunch, Dharma Speaker Program, and Raffle (until about 1:45 pm)
All proceeds will go towards grants by Buddhist Global Relief (BGR) that go to partner organizations that give vital food aid and promote greater food productivity in communities across the globe. A portion of the proceeds of this walk will go to Hour Children in Queens, NY for their Food Pantry. A contribution will also go to the Holy Trinity Church for their Food Pantry.
