Ekal Nature Walk
Saturday, May 15, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
Ekal Vidyalaya (Washington DC) is organizing Ekal Nature Walk on May 15 in scenic Rock Creek Park. The 5K event has received considerable enthusiastic support from community as well as sponsors. This is the maiden start of what is planned as an annual event.
All participants will meet at 9 am and walk upto 5 kilometers. This is a good way to start or continue your ‘fit' lifestyle, meet others who share your values, and enjoy a beautiful morning in one of the Washington DC area's most picturesque parks. We've been busy making all the arrangements - the permits, water, snacks, etc. so that you can focus on having fun. When you have a few minutes, click on the following link that tells you about Ekal and Ekal activities in other parts of the US, and gives very useful tips and techniques on walking, running, yoga stretches and other activities that can get you started on your active lifestyle today: http://teamekal.blogspot.com/ .
Please join us along with your friends and family. Ekal nature walk is a family-friendly event designed for all ages/fitness levels, and we also welcome enthusiastic non-walkers to come out and cheer the walkers. We strongly encourage you to register online to help us plan, but if you are unable to do so, to register in person at the event, please download this registration form and bring the filled out form with exact cash or check.
We invite children and teens to seek sponsors for their walk. You can download and print the sponsorship form to approach and record your sponsors’ details. Sponsorship can be for each kilometer the student walks (eg: $4 per km would mean the sponsor pledges $20 if student completes the 5K walk). We also encourage everyone to print and distribute the Ekal Walk flyer amongst friends and talk about the event.
