WALK A MILE TO SUPPORT THE IMPORTANT WORK OF BROOKLYN COMMUNITY SERVICES.
GO THE DISTANCE FOR A BETTER BROOKLYN.


About the BCS Million Step Challenge
Seven years ago, clients from our programs for adults with disabilities wanted to raise funds for recreational activities that would help them better connect to the Brooklyn Community.  They created the BCS FunWalk, a one mile walk in Prospect Park.  Over the years, the FunWalk has grown and proceeds have become a significant part of helping to sustain the important work of BCS. In 2013, staff and clients decided to challenge the community with the goal of getting 500 walkers to participate.  500 walkers, at 2,000 steps per mile; equals one million steps.  The BCS Million Step Challenge was born.
