New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and head coach Rex Ryan invite you 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, form a team and raise funds for the Alliance for Lupus Research's eighth annual Northern New Jersey Walk With Us to Cure Lupus. Johnson is the National Walk Chairman and Tannenbaum and Ryan are Honorary Walk Chairmen.

The 5K (3.1-mile) walk will be held Saturday, June 5, at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, N.J., and will include refreshments, entertainment and special appearances by New York Jets players. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk is at 10 a.m.

The Alliance for Lupus Research 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. The ALR's mission is to find better treatments and ultimately prevent and cure systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, or lupus), a debilitating autoimmune disease, by supporting the most promising research projects from scientists at the most prestigious universities, medical schools and hospitals throughout the world.
