[I posted this in the Echo Base forums offsite as well, but it doesn't hurt to have it here too...]
Christina Romo of MEPA, the NYC Fanforce, has been interested for a while in having people participate in this walk-a-thon in Battery Park, so I figured this was a good place to post about it. I had a lot of fun when I did the AIDS Walk in Central Park in costume, and as always it's for a good cause. I'd really like for this to happen; I've been looking forward to it, and this is a personal cause for Chris. It'd be cool if we could get at least a dozen people for a team (or more!) though that's probably wishful thinking. We have strength in numbers. A couple of people walking in costume would just seem weird, but a big group of us would make an impact. (Chris was also thinking of designing t-shirts for anyone who'd like to walk but would prefer to be out of costume, or doesn't have a costume.)
The good thing about this is that since it's in October the weather won't be as hot.

If there's enough interest here Chris or I will go form a team and start fundraising!
