Save the Date! Celebrating Our Seniors


The Aging in New York Fund invites you to participate in its inaugural event: Celebrating Our Seniors – A Walk Through Time.

Please consider supporting the Fund by either joining an existing team or creating your own team and walking to celebrate all things senior!

Celebrating Our Seniors ‐ A Walk Through Time is a citywide fundraiser that tells the story of New York through the eyes of its longest lived citizens, our seniors. It is also a time to honor the beauty of intergenerational relationships.

Looking to the past to honor the present, the highlight of the day is the celebratory “Walk Through Time.” This preset path highlights the New York experience one decade at a time, starting with the 1940’s.

ANYF is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for older New Yorkers and their families. The Fund accomplishes this by developing model programs to meet the unique and emerging needs of seniors, their caregivers and the aging service providers.

  • Get involved! Visit Onceyou’ve registered, you can start asking everyone you know (friends, family, colleagues, local business and other individuals) to pledge money for your “Walk Through Time.”
  • This is an afternoon of fun, learning and remembrance for individuals, families and community organizations.
  • Breaking tradition from the usual “thons,” you can participate in as much or as little of the event as you like, at your own leisure.
  • Enjoy oral histories, crafts, music and a labyrinth of activities that will spark the sharing of memories.
