"Congratulations Leta! Kathy and Dave"
We have a good hunch you believe in movement as a path towards health, so here's a fun way to act on that belief with good company and in some of New York City's finest green spaces, while raising money and awareness for the very neighborhoods we will be passing through! Come explore the cliffside parks of northern Manhattan, traversing a total of 5 parks over 6 miles of breathtaking views of both the East and Hudson Rivers. (See below for hike options, registration and fundraising information.)
Along the way, Moving For Life will lead health-giving stretches and teach you how to turn any park into a green gym. Everyone will also receive a Moving For Life button. Hikers reaching sponsorship thresholds receive limited-edition Moving For Life hats and/or backpacks. Top off the day with a visit to the Cloisters or have lunch in Fort Tryon Park.
To start rallying sponsors today, simply click Start Fundraising Now and we'll guide you through the steps through easy-to-follow directions and handy tools. This year, we would also like to invite all to join TEAM JOHNNY, a special hiking team led by Louisa Cathcart, a recent Moving For Life Certified Instructor, focused on launching Moving For Life classes designed for kids and young adults affected by cancer. Alternatively, if you'd like to join the hike WITHOUT fundraising, click here to learn about our Rally-Walks.
Can't join us on the journey? Consider sponsoring one of our hikers at the bottom of this page. Or you may donate to the campaign in general too! With your help we can strengthen our thoughtfully-designed programs that empower people to start feeling better in the face of cancer and aging. We thank you for your generous support!
