WHEN: We'll gather at John Paul Jones Park just outside the main gate of Fort Hamilton at 8:30am and step off shortly thereafter for a full day of walking, visiting historic sites and markers, and learning about and commemorating NYC military and veteran heritage from 1776 to the present. Plan on this as an all-day event; we'll move in small groups and make stops for learning and breaks. We plan to end at approximately 4-5pm. We will let registrants know more specifics as we refine our planning.
DONATE OR FUNDRAISE: As a growing, grassroots organization celebrating our 2nd birthday, we ask that registrants support our work by either donating or fundraising a modest minimum amount for this inaugural march that we hope to continue annually for years to come. For registrants wishing to fundraise for the NYC Veterans Alliance, we can set up an individual online fundraising page for you, customized with your photo and story. Funds will go directly toward supporting the Alliance's work to empower veterans and families to make change in NYC and beyond--and we'll be very grateful for your help!
GET A FREE BEER! If you're already a NYC Veterans Alliance member and you bring a friend who joins or renews their membership--have a beer on us when we finish!
WHAT TO BRING: Registrants should pack a rucksack or backpack with an adequate supply of water, snacks, raingear, sunscreen, and other supplies needed for a full day of walking outdoors. Registrants should also pack at least one change of socks and wear comfortable hiking boots or durable footwear. Foot powder can be helpful, too.
