This summer, the Chinese-American Planning Council, Inc. (CPC) will bring together over 5,000 people from across New York City for a Walkathon & Family Day Fair.
The CPC Walkathon & Family Day showcases diverse cultures and social service needs of New York City’s 3 largest Chinese-American communities - the Lower East Side, Manhattan; Sunset Park, Brooklyn and Flushing, Queens.
This year’s theme is “One Community. One Goal. Walk For Our Future.”
With the goal of fundraising and raising awareness for the increasing need for social services in NYC, we encourage everyone to walk to show their support for their community.

Walkers begin the day at Columbus Park, Chinatown with a lion dance, speeches by community leaders, and performances by CPC program participants. Starting from Columbus Park, participants will walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn. Walkers will then be welcomed to a community rally at Cadman Plaza and then ushered back to Columbus Park for the Community Service Family Day Fair and to collect their prizes. The Community Service Family Day Fair consists of live entertainment, raffles, games and community education booths from CPC’s Community Services, other community organizations, and event sponsors.
