There are many reasons why the The Mother’s Day Walk exists and is held every year. Aside from being a great way to kick off New York City’s outdoor festival season, and an awesome alternative for what to do with Mom on her special day; it is a fantastic way to celebrate and honor the love and dedication of all mothers, while giving tribute to those moms who have experienced or have lost their lives to Domestic Violence.
Above all, The Mother’s Day Walk is about Family and Fun!

By walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, recognizing the accomplishments of those who have overcome abuse, and showcasing local talent and entertainment; The Mother’s Day Walk symbolically brings light to the hope and possibilities that exist for anyone who is willing to do whatever it takes to go beyond their present circumstances.
Created by the non-profit organization Milagros Day Worldwide with its tagline of Turning Abuse Into Success, and its vision of Shifting The Victim Paradigm, The Mother’s Day Walk serves as a platform for raising awareness and funds to support the life-changing programs they provide to survivors of abuse, and to those who grew up in abusive households; such as The Transformation Academy and The Bootcamp Retreat.
