And the Winners Are…

Wondering what all this talk about virtual walking really means?  N Street Village staff and supporters submitted videos to show how they will be virtually walking for N Street Village in the 2011 Fannie Mae Help the Homeless Walkathon. Virtual walkers count towards N Street Village’s goal of 3,000 walkers, resulting in $50,000 from Fannie Mae.

On Wednesday October 19th, staff gathered for the staff Walkathon lunch where all 11 videos were viewed. A panel of esteemed judges came together to choose the video that best encompassed what it means to virtually walk.  Staff in attendance also voted for one video to receive the Fan Favorite award.

This year’s Judges’ Choice award went to a video submitted by N Street Village Director of Programs, Ann McCreedy, featuring her husband, James.  The judges noted that all the videos submitted to promote virtual walking were strong – but the concept behind James’ video truly depicted the idea of supporting N Street Village as a virtual walker.  Join James and support N Street Village while sticking to your normal Saturday routine.

The video that received Fan Favorite honors also went to a video submitted by Ann McCreedy, and was created by her very talented nephew, Ewan.  Now none of us want to let Batman down – virtually walk for N Street Village!
