Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 11th, 2014
Our 3rd Annual Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge marks a New York City tradition that celebrates women and mothers everywhere, honors those we have lost, and acknowledges those who have overcome domestic violence and are using their experiences to make a difference in their communities.
This event benefits the recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization Milagros Day Worldwide which provides accelerated personal growth and professional development to survivors of domestic violence or those who grew up in an abusive household.
The theme of this amazing event is "Turning Abuse Into Success" where we invite city agencies, nonprofits, civic groups and corporations to bring their banners and walk with us across New York City’s iconic Brooklyn Bridge to shift the victim paradigm and enjoy a multi-cultural concert at the beautiful, historic Cadman Plaza Park.
We Need Your Presence and your Donation to Help Transform Lives
With the $25,000 raised through this campaign; and the 1000 people we want to see attend, we will be able to solidify the Mother's Day Walk as THE thing to do on Mother's Day in New York City, AND we will be able to fund the basic expenses of the life-changing Milagros Day Worldwide programs for the rest of 2014!!
