Join the SUNY Team at United Way’s Bridge Walk in New York City This Saturday

Join the SUNY Team at the United Way Bridge Walk in New York City this Saturday, September 29!  The procession will make its way across the Brooklyn Bridge to show its support of United Way’s mission to “raise awareness of the need to bridge critical gaps in educational achievement, income stability and access to healthy food for low-income New Yorkers.”

SUNY is a major economic driver in the downstate region and our efforts to improve the lives of New Yorkers aligns directly with United Way’s Bridge Walk awareness campaign.

SUNY has been an ongoing supporter of United Way’s efforts in New York.  In fact, Chancellor Zimpher, a member of United Way NYC’s Board of Directors, joined the walk last year with a huge mass of SUNY students, alumni and faculty.

We’re inviting all alumni, students and faculty in the area on Saturday to join the very visible SUNY Team.   Our group, donned in SUNY stickers, will walk behind a large SUNY banner.  Campuses that have pledged walkers include Stony Brook University, College of Optometry, Fashion Institute of Technology, Downstate Medical University and College at Old Westbury.

2.  Meet the SUNY Team at 8:30AM at Foley Square on Saturday, September 29.

After the walk, a festival will be held featuring live music, children’s activities, food and more.  For the full event schedule, click here.
