Please join the “Kids for a Better Future” Spring Charity Walk. The Walk will be on Saturday May 19th at 11 am, rain or shine.

The entire walk is once around the Park Drive Loop in Prospect Park, which is 3.35 miles.

Meeting time is 10:30 am May 19th in Prospect Park on the Park Drive Loop at 9th Street . Enter Prospect Park at 9th street and walk straight
ahead until you meet the loop. The Walk will begin at 11 am sharp. At 12:00 we will all meet at the Prospect Park Carousel for a
post-Walkathon party. Members of Women for Afghan Women will be there to tell you all about their work, and the schools you are helping build.

What you should do if you are interested in participating:
Email Akash Mehta at to let him know you are participating.

Take a sponsorship form, and get your friends and family to sponsor you per mile that you walk. Or you can just ask people to give you a

The goal is for 50 kids to participate in the Walk, and for each kid to raise $100. All money raised will go to support a library in the two
girls’ schools in Herat, Afghanistan that “Kids for a Better Future” has been fundraising for.

So please try and raise at least $100 from your friends and family—you can do it, it will be lots of fun, and it will mean a better future for
kids less fortunate than us.
