The PFF Walk unites the community in raising funds and awareness for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Join us as we walk together toward a cure!
Held at Liberty State Park, the PFF Walk - NYC Metro offers two course options – 1-mile or 5K – along a stunning waterfront pathway with views of Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Manhattan skyline. After the Walk, we invite you to stay for a celebration with family-friendly activities and light refreshments.
Register for yourself or start a team today! Registration is free.
Commemorative T-shirt and Incentive Program
As a thank you for raising funds and awareness, all registered Walkers can earn PFF-branded items! After individual fundraising is tallied post-Walk, participants will receive information about their gift level and how to redeem their item.
Besides the Walk t-shirt, all items will be shipped and gifts are not cumulative. One item per participant. All Walkers who raise at least $100 before the Walk will qualify to receive the official PFF Walk t-shirt and can pick it up at registration.
We are grateful for your fundraising efforts and hope you enjoy these items year-around to raise awareness! Thank you.
Please note: Thank you gifts are determined by individual fundraising totals. All PFF Walk participants who register and raise funds are eligible to redeem a gift from their highest level achieved (or under). Team fundraising totals and non-registered donors do not qualify for this program. The PFF reserves the right to substitute a gift of equal or greater value or to change the gifts at any time.
The Walk will be held at Liberty State Park in the park space just south of the Statue of Liberty Ferry Parking lot and near the Liberty State Park Walkway. Parking is connected to the walk-site at 30 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305. Audrey Zapp Drive is a cobblestone road off Jersey Avenue. You will be on this road for about 3 minutes before entering the parking lot. Parking is $7.
Liberty State Park is accessible via ferry from Manhattan, as well as Path train and Light Rail. You can find directions here. Please note that traffic in Jersey City can be unpredictable, as can weekend public transportation. We recommend that you give yourself extra time to arrive, park, and walk to the walk-site.
