Television icon Oprah Winfrey celebrated the 10th Anniversary of O, The Oprah Magazine, with a Mother’s Day charity walk benefiting 10 charities that began at Intrepid on Sunday May 9th, 2010.
 
Winfrey led nearly 7,000 walkers from Intrepid to Times Square as part of the walk and celebration.  Enthusiastic Oprah fans and race participants started lining up at Intrepid before 6am, braving unseasonably cold and windy conditions.
 
Winfrey was joined by many celebrities including Gayle King, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Bette Midler, Elizabeth Banks, Tracy Chapman, Emmylou Harris, Dr. Mehmet Oz and others for the walk, which supported these worthy charities:  Share our Strength, FFAWN, NY Restoration Project, Camp C.O.P.E, Oceana, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Partners in Health, A Better Chance, Best Friends Animal Society and Health Corps.  Intrepid was proud to help support these initiatives.  Be sure to check out all of the great photos in our gallery.
