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!!  

  • Dare To Dream/Atrevete A Soñar - 2 Hour Introduction to personal development  in English or Spanish for survivors. Awareness/Prevention talk for all audiences. 
  • The Legacy Bootcamp- 3 Day Mountain Retreat for survivors. Filled with Fun and Connection; Spiritual, Emotional and Physical experiential healing exercises.  
  • The Transformation Academy- 12 Week Leadership Course for survivors. Principles of philosophy, relationships, personal achievement, social responsibility. 
  • The Declaration Series- 6 Week Mentoring Program for survivors. Matching talents and visions with a successful community leader who will support their dream. 

The Impact: 

Milagros Day Worldwide has made a difference for hundreds of women and families throughout the New York Tri-State Area and beyond. Here are some Testimonials:
