Let's Walk Together™ - A Benefit for Café Rebecca and the Rebecca School Community
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Let's Walk Together™ was created to support the Rebecca School Community, through fundraising for the non-profit, Rebecca Association for Autism. We felt that there was a need for a walk that could accommodate our students’ sensory strengths, needs, and abilities. Let us gather and celebrate the Rebecca School staff, families, and most of all, the students - all for a good cause!
Let’s Walk Together™ is a grass-roots event created by the Rebecca School staff.
100% of the proceeds will go to the Rebecca Association for Autism (RAA), and their support of Café Rebecca. The RAA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information on how to get involved, contact email@example.com.
Café Rebecca is a gluten-free café located within the Rebecca School. Through the Café Rebecca program, students in the transitions program (ages 15-21) bake, deliver, advertise and run all aspects of a café. Our student bakers create everything from the logo to the cupcakes. Café Rebecca is helping the Rebecca School learn about healthy choices while making cooking a fun, shared experience for all.
One-mile walk in Flushing Meadows Park with games and art activities for all ages to enjoy throughout the walk.
Let's Walk Together™ is RAIN OR SHINE!
What if I can't come, can I still donate?

How long is the walk?
The walk will be approximately 1 mile long. It is not necessary to walk the entire or any of the course, this is an event about being together!
Will there be a designated "break" area?
Let's Walk Together™ will create a safe and comfortable environment to support different sensory needs. We will do our best to provide a break area where both children and family members can get a needed break from the activities...there may be bubbles!

There are public bathrooms nearby the meeting point (Bathrooms and facilities map HERE)
