HELP ENSURE ALL NEW YORKERS HAVE THE HEALTHCARE THEY NEED

For the month of October, the Floating Hospital will hold its first Walk for Families, a family-friendly month-long event to raise funds and awareness in support of healthcare access for families experiencing homelessness in New York City. We invite you to walk with us to support our 155-year-old charitable legacy of providing high-quality, compassionate healthcare for all who need it.

Enlist your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues, or just walk yourself and in solidarity with others who share your commitment to helping our city’s most vulnerable families. The event fundraising minimums are $150 for adults; and $75 for those under 18.

The first 250 walkers who register before September 10, will receive a free Walk For Families T-Shirt by October 1.

YOU CAN MAKE A LASTING IMPACT.

Since 1866, The Floating Hospital has provided healthcare and relief to New York City families and children living in homeless shelters, domestic violence safe houses and other temporary housing, regardless of their ability to pay. We are an anchor for those who are adrift in a complex society with few other safety nets.

You can support The Floating Hospital’s historic legacy of care in a number of ways: sponsor the event, assemble a team of family, friends and neighbors or make this a team-building event for your co-workers. Any way you participate will make a difference. All funds raised will directly support our services and programs and make certain our safety net endures for those who need it most.

When we walk in solidarity, we help ensure our city’s neediest families do not walk alone.
