The Marty Lyons Foundation was established in 1982 to fulfill the special wishes of children ages three (3) to seventeen (17) years old, who have been diagnosed as having a terminal or life threatening illness by providing and arranging special wish requests.
Please join us for this amazing day where we look to bring together over 100 people from several fun social networking organizations in and around NYC to help raise the funds needed to help fulfill the wishes for these special children.
This is not your average Walk A Thon, this is more like a gathering of friends getting together to help kids in need. The walk begins at P.D. O'Hurley's on the Circle Line Pier at the end of west 44th and the Hudson River. The group will walk up the beautiful path along the Hudson River to 86th Street ( Approx. 3 miles). Along the way you will socialize, network and connect with others while taking in all the sights along the way. The walk ends with a huge reception party at The Firehouse Tavern during the Columbus Avenue Street fair where you can order lunch at the restaurant or grab some grub at the street fair. We will have a very cool outdoor party space set aside as part of the Columbus Avenue Street Festival complete with an outdoor bar, music, football games on the TV’s and more! There will also be an opportunity to win great prizes from our friends and media sponsor WPLJ.
The day will include:
-A commemorative T-shirt
-Post walk party
-Prizes and raffles
