We have come together for the purpose of holding a major youth walk on Broad St.
Saturday August 25th 2012. Our main message is “BE THE CHANGE.” The objectives of
this walk are to:
1. encourage the youth led-movement for positivity, self-awareness and social change
2. raise resources for area organizations which serve the youth in areas of mentoring,
education and wellness
3. discourage violence, hopelessness and despair among the youth and general public
with a optimistic message
4. highlight the positive contribution of the city’s youth led-organizations.
We are actively seeking partner organizations that can serve as fellow event
endorsers. The event will feature a Youth and Community Walk that begins at Love Park
at 15th and JFK and ends at Broad and Erie. Following the Walk, we plan to have an
awards ceremony, food and drink, along with musical performances and vendor booths
for our event sponsors. We expect a large number of youth and community walkers for
this inaugural Walk.
We ask that you consider joining us as a Walk endorser and partner with us in an
effort to show a united community effort regarding the health and well-being of our city’s
If you have questions about the Philly Stand Up Be
