Jets Walk

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and head coach Rex Ryan invite fans to help the Jets find a cure for lupus. If you or someone you know has lupus, or you simply want to make a difference in someone’s life, join the Jets to help raise funds for the Alliance for Lupus Research’s annual New Jersey Walk With Us to Cure Lupus. Johnson is the National Walk Chairman and Tannenbaum and Ryan are Honorary Walk Chairmen.

The Jets filled some of their offseason needs this year and should see themselves as favorites with the weekly NFL odds.

The 5K (3.1-mile) walk will be held Saturday, May 12, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., and will include refreshments, entertainment and special appearances by Jets players and coaches. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk is at 10 a.m.

The Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) is a national voluntary health organization based in New York City that was founded in 1999 and is chaired by Robert Wood Johnson IV, a member of the founding family of Johnson & Johnson.
