About this event

We’re excited to have our second Father’s Heart Ministries’ Walkathon: The Comeback 2021! The event will be on Sunday, October 3, 2021. There are two walking options to choose to walk:

9:30 AM - arrival for those walking on the 10-mile route - estimated return is 3:30 PM

12:30 PM - arrival for those walking on the 3-mile route - estimated return is 3:30 PM

3:30 PM - Celebration - family and friends can cheer for those who just made their journey! RAFFLES, GAMES, SNACKS

2,750 New Yorkers would go hungry without the food supplementation from the Father's Heart Ministries. Since the COVID-19 pandemic brought NYC to a standstill in March of 2020, we’ve seen a nearly 30% increase of guests seeking assistance. Although the city has started to reopen with some degree of normalcy, our climbing guest count and dozens of new guests each week, reflect the reality that people really do still need the food. Our communities were disproportionately affected by the pandemic and are still without resources and methods of recovery. We are also seeing more people on disability and we know that anyone on a fixed income needs food supplementation and other resources. No human being should be denied access to the basic necessity of food and you can be a part of helping us ensure that no one is left behind.

Many in our city are anticipating a comeback and wondering what it will look like for them. Among all the many challenges to be faced, a lack of food for themselves and their families should not be one of them. Neither should the ability to manage finances or be unemployed and/or unemployable. And we know that our children and teens will need social and emotional help to strengthen them for the academic year ahead.

We are committed to doing all that we can to ensure our guests have a healthy comeback but we need your help! Won’t you join our walkathon on Sunday, October 3rd to help us raise the funds we need to ensure a healthy comeback for all New Yorkers? If you’re not able to walk, won’t you thoughtfully consider a tax-deductible donation that you’d be willing to pledge to give? Your contributions make a tangible daily difference in the lives of your neighbors across New York City and your generosity will not go unnoticed. Thank you for being such a valuable member of our community and for your ongoing support to be the change we all long to see in our city.
