The Big Walk – NJ2NY50

March 13, 2010

NJ2NY50 is a one-day 50-mile walk through suburban and urban New Jersey ending in New York City on Sunday, May 23. This is an informal social networking event that everyone can enjoy. The origin of a 50-mile walk, or urban hike, dates back in the 1963 when President Kennedy challenged the American Public to actively pursue a better, healthier lifestyle. Today, although we know more about how to live better,  we often make the wrong choices or are too busy to pay proper attention to our own health and creating communities that we want to live in.

By participating in the “Big Walk” we can break out and experience a new pro-pedestrian movement that provides opportunities to exercise, experience and contribute to improving our communities as well as ourselves.  For more information, please visit
