Hey everybody and welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Chinese American Planning Council's (CPC) 2014 Walkathon & Family Day Fair!
The Walkathon & Family Day Fair is CPC's flagship and signature community service, fundraising, outreach, and public relations event that is held every two years. The purpose of the event is multi-faceted and aims to do three things: 1.) Raise awareness of crucial issues faced by immigrant and low-income populations not only in NYC but also across the country and the world; 2.) Promote the 60+ programs that CPC maintains and operates at 25+ locations across NYC that serve over 8,000 people daily; 3.) Fundraise for CPC programming.
This year's Walkathon & Family Day Fair is especially crucial, as it is a precursor to the 50th Anniversary of CPC coming up in 2015. Not many organizations as diverse and critical as CPC can survive that long, and CPC has done its part in making sure it stays on top and thrives during times of distress faced by everybody across the board.
I started at CPC in March as a volunteer stationed in CPC's Central Office on 150 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan. Since then, I have been hired as an intern to work on Walkathon planning. I can easily say this has been one of the greatest experiences of my life working for an organization that does so much for the community. I have been able to see firsthand what this organization does and why it has survived for so long in the volatile environment that is New York City.
It would mean the absolute world to me if YOU, the individual reading this testimonial, could either share the link to this page to spread awareness of the event or make a donation. A penny, $1, $5, anything would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU!!!!!

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!
Donate, Pledge & Walk.
