Towards Our Goal






Recurring Donors

We are fundraising to strengthen our wellness programs in the hospitals and public libraries of Harlem, Bronx and beyond.


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 6 parks over 6 miles of breathtaking views of both the East and Hudson Rivers. You may choose to walk a portion or all of the inspiring trek.

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 minimums receive limited-edition MFL baseball caps, backpacks, and/or DVDs. 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. You may choose to hike individually or as part of a team. Speaking of teams, which class do you think will raise more? Lincoln Hospital or Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Cancer Center? And will the Moving For Life Board Members raise more than the Moving For Life Staff? Or will we see a "Battle of the Boroughs"? Let's find out! If you're not the competitive type, maybe you'd like to walk in honor or in memory of a loved one?

Can't join us on the journey? No problem! You can still be there in spirit by sponsoring one of our hikers (scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on any hiker to donate on their individual campaign page). Alternatively, you may donate to the campaign in general by clicking Donate. With your help we can strengthen our thoughtfully-designed programs that empower people to start feeling better in the face of cancer. We thank you for your generous support!

Happy Trails,
