We are pleased to invite you to the Walk for Nepal 2013 Launch Meeting on Sunday, February 17, 2013, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., at the Himalayan Heritage Restaurant. Walk for Nepal is a common platform for Nepalese and friends in giving back together to critical social causes in Nepal through walkathons organized in cities around the world.  In the last two years, Walk for Nepal events in Boston, Dallas and New York have successfully brought the Nepali diaspora and friends of Nepal together to support more than twenty nonprofits and youth initiatives.  WfN-DC, a continuation of this inspiring tradition and this year, WfN-DC will kick off the campaign for 2013.  We are looking forward to your participation in this important launch meeting.
