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.
