NFL Legend George Martin Takes “GIANT STEPS for 9/11” on Sun, Sept. 13, 2009

13-Mile Trek from the George Washington Bridge (Ft. Lee, NJ side) to Giants Stadium Will Benefit Ground Zero Workers Now in Medical Distress; Public Invited to Join Charitable Walk

WHO: George Martin, NY Giants great, Super Bowl XXI co-captain, humanitarian
Danny Masterson, co-star of That 70’s Show (honorary grand marshal)
* Hundreds of walkers (civilians and uniformed services) seeking to help thousands of ailing 9/11 workers

WHAT: a Journey for 9/11 charitable organization founded by Martin is staging a
13-mile walk, GIANT STEPS for 9/11, to benefit Ground Zero responders who are now seriously ill. George Martin and a limited number of walkers will start on the NY side of the GWB and meet hundreds of others on the NJ side. The walk will end at Giants Stadium on field for a ceremony before the Giants home opener. Register at www.ajourneyfor911.info or call (877) WALK-911.

WHERE: George Washington Bridge (media to gather on NY side; most of the walkers
will gather on NJ side)

WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 13, 2009
8:30 – 9:15 a.m. (INTERVIEWS on NYC side of GWB)
9:15 – 9:45 a.m. (WALK ACROSS GWB)
9:45 – 10:00 a.m. (Additional INTERVIEWS on NJ side of GWB in Ft. Lee)

WHY: To raise funds to help provide health care for ailing heroic Ground Zero workers.
Many of those who responded on and after 9/11 are sick with respiratory and other diseases that can cause permanent disability. Some have lost their jobs and have no health insurance. In 2007-08, George Martin, humanitarian, retired NFL star and NY Giants Super Bowl XXI co-captain, walked 3,003 miles from NYC to San Diego to raise nearly $3 million for this cause. This time, he won’t be walking alone!

Other supporters, who will meet Martin upon his arrival at Giants Stadium include:
• Harry Carson, NFL Hall of Famer, NY Giants great, Super Bowl champion
• OJ Anderson, Super Bowl XXV MVP, 2x Pro Bowl RB
• Joe Morris, retired NY Giant (1982-1989), 2x Pro Bowl RB
• Keith Hamilton, retired NY Giant (1992-2003), 1x Pro Bowl DE
• Gary Jeter, retired NY Giant DE (1977-1989), All Rookie 1977
• Bruce Harper, all time kick returner in NJ Jets history (1977-84)

** Media is STRONGLY urged to RSVP due to space limitations and Pt. Authority security considerations at the Bridge. Please RSVP to John Mooney at johnrmooney@yahoo.com or (908) 720-6057 cell.
