What’s New for 2012!

Walk Route
Join us for a 1.4 mile Walk route. Slightly longer than last year’s Walk but shorter than in previous years, we think this route is just right.



Hotel Rooms
The Unity Walk has arranged for hotel rooms at reduced rates at a number of hotels in Manhattan and one in Jersey City. The deadlines are March 28th and April 5th depending on the hotel so make your plans soon!

Team Photo Booth
Stop by the Team Photo Booth by the Bandshell and receive a printed copy of your photo to take home with you. You can also download a digital copy of the photo from the vendor’s website and forward it to your team members and supporters.

Community Calendar and Stars in Action
If you are planning a fundraiser – regardless of the size or how much money you plan to raise – share your ideas with other participants and let us hear from you. Click here to post your event on our calendar and email to submit your event for posting on our "Stars in Action" page along with photos from your event.

Connect with other team captains
When you create a team, you now have the ability to “opt in” and connect with other team captains. Share fundraising ideas, meet another Walk participant from your area and/or enjoy some friendly competition.

Donation deadline
Donations need to be received by May 28, 2012 to be credited to the 2012 Walk. Any donations received after that date will be credited to the 2013 Walk.
