Hey page viewer! Welcome to my fundraising page for the 2014 CPC Walkathon & Family Day Fair!!!
As some of you may know, this will be my fourth summer at CPC, and my second summer as an intern! (I am back serving as the Community Outreach Coordinator for this big event!)
CPC stands for the Chinese-American Planning Council and is located in New York City. Founded in 1965, it is the largest direct service non-for-profit that serves the APA community in the US to date. They offer 50 social service programs in over 25 locations citywide. These services include child daycares, afterschool programming, college counseling, workforce development, senior services, and many more.
My family and I have found tremendous support from CPC's various services; my mom was once a student in one of their ESL classes, and my brother was a participant in Project Gateway, their college prep program. As for myself, I have always been a proud member of their Volunteer and Internship Program (VIP) where I even found a couple of life mentors.
However, the cycle of doing good did not stop there. Last summer I was blessed with the opportunity to come back and lead VIP as their Program Coordinator. CPC really develops community leaders and passionate go-getters and truly embodies the motto of "Doing Good is Contagious".
The Walkathon and Family Day Fair is an event that happens every two years and is the organization's largest fundraiser and awareness project. We aim to raise money and awareness about CPC's various social services in communities all over NYC. The event will also kick off CPC's 50th Anniversary and it would be great if we broke the record and raised $200,000 or more to support our many service programs.
But of course one person cannot do it all. My personal plan is raise up to $1,000. Please help my organization out by donating $1, $5, $10, maybe even $20 to my page.
Thanks for clicking my link and stopping by :)
Here are some words from the amazing organization itself:

CPC is celebrating our 50th Anniversary of "People Helping People"!
The CPC Walkathon & Family Day Fair showcase diverse cultures, celebrate the grassroots efforts of community based social service agencies and most importantly advocates for the need for social services in New York City's three largest Chinese-American communities: the Lower East Side, Manhattan; Sunset Park, Brooklyn and Flushing, Queens.
This community event rallies to support the wide range of social service programs that are offered by CPC. It ensures we have resources to provide strong social services and continue programming in innovative ways.
This summer, CPC will bring together over 5,000 people from across NYC for our Walkathon & Family Day Fair to celebrate generations of community service.
Join us August 3, 2014 at 9am (Columbus Park, Chinatown) to walk and show your support for our community!
