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 annual New Jersey 5K 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, May 21, at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., and will include refreshments, entertainment and special appearances by Jets coaches and alumni. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk is at 10 a.m.
