Park Slope Neighbors has put together a team and will be walking to raise funds for the legal fight against the proposed "Atlantic Yards" project.  Join as a walker or to pitch in by contributing funds.

The Walkathon is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st, and will kick off at 12 noon at the Prospect Park Bandshell.  The two-mile walk route will wind through Prospect Park, returning to the Bandshell for an afternoon of free music, fun activities for kids, food and more.

There's a strong possibility that the fight to stop or significantly alter the proposed "Atlantic Yards" will come down to a battle in the courts. The legal case against the use of eminent domain and the flimsiness of the environmental review process is strong, but it takes money to field a top-notch legal team, and that's where this Walkathon comes in.  Raising money and awareness is vital to the effort.

Registering for the Walkathon is easy. Just go to http://www.dddb.net/walkathon, click on REGISTER HERE, then JOIN A TEAM, and select "Park Slope Neighbors" from the pull-down menu. Then follow the remaining steps to complete your registration.  It all takes less than five minutes.

If you register as a walker, you'll get the following, all in a user-friendly format:

    • A personalized donation page
    • Online donations
    • Email templates to send to your friends/sponsors with a link to your donation page
    • Reports that track who has visited your page
    • Reports that track the donations you've received

If you need help registering, please contact Elena Park at 847-927-7275.

If you would like to contribute but can't participate, please visit http://www.dddb.net/walkathon, click on "Park Slope Neighbors" under "Team Rank" on the right-hand side (or click "More" if PSN isn't in the top five), and then click "General Team Donation" and follow the instructions.
