George Washington Bridge Walk aims to raise $50,000 for Alpha-1 research

You are invited to join Alphas, their family and friends from New York, New Jersey and the surrounding areas to team up with the Alpha-1 Foundation and the Mara Center to raise awareness and money for Alpha-1 research programs.

Last year, a record 200-plus walkers attended the walk and raised over $30,000, also a record for the event.

A light breakfast will be served for all participants. The at-your-own-pace walk is just under a mile and a half. Walkers can then turn around and walk back, or they can choose to take a bus back from the terminal right at the end of the bridge. There is also a scenic overlook for those who want to admire the scenery but not walk over the bridge.

A celebratory lunch will be held after the walk for all participants.

Participants can register online here, or fill out the registration form and send it to Lori Tartell at or fax to (212) 523-8426.

The registration fee is $25 for all participants 8 and up, and includes a t-shirt, breakfast and lunch. To ensure a t-shirt, be sure to register by April 11.
