Announcing: Walk-A-Mile Event

April 27, 2019

Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier

​Suicide Prevention Efforts

(Hosted by the Northern Tioga Chamber of Commerce)

The Northern Tioga Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring this walk as a fundraiser for the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier to support their Suicide Prevention efforts.

WHAT IT IS: ‘Walk-A-Mile’ is a campaign to raise awareness of, and raise money for, a local cause. It encourages people to ‘walk a mile’ in another’s shoes, to show empathy for those in a difficult situation, and to raise money for an organization that labors in support of that cause.

WHEN: Saturday, April 27 — 10am (rain or shine)
WHERE: Participants meet at the NV Village Green in the center of town.  The 1-mile walk will begin there, proceed to the Trout Ponds Park and return to the Village Green, ending in the Noble Room inside the post office bldg. 
COST TO PARTICIPATE:  Adult participants — minimum $25, children to age 12 free. The idea is participants solicit walk fee through sponsorships from family, friends, colleagues (or self-fund). Individuals can commit to sponsor any amount, as long as total raised per-walker is at least $25.  There is a Registration page for walker sign-upsand a Sponsor page to fill in with Sponsor commitments.
OPTIONAL: Walk-A-Mile t-shirts will be available for purchase.
REGISTRATION:  Please register by April 12 and indicate if a t-shirt is desired (and size). Walkers are also welcome on the day of the event, and t-shirts can be purchased at that time if still available.
