Just as it has impacted the world, COVID-19 has affected the Walk with Joe. Our spring golf outing scheduled for April 27th has been postponed and we are awaiting a new date in the year from Pine Barrens Golf Club. We can only hope that our actual walk on September 12 will go as scheduled but if for some reason it can't, we have a few ideas we will explore. Either way, we hope to see you all in person or virtually. We will keep you up to date. For now, let us say that our thoughts and prayers are with all of our WWJ community, our volunteers, and all our supporters. As always, we thank you all for your support over the years. Take care and God bless you all!!
The WWJ Leadership Team
On behalf of the Walk with Joe, we thank you for your continuing support and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, 9/12/2020.
Join us and walk with family, friends and the community as we celebrate the lives of “Joe” Driscoll, Chris Gray, and Tom McCann, three of the thousands of heroes who tragically lost their lives on 9/11, and give comfort to their families.
The Walk honors Patrick "Joe" Driscoll, a hero aboard Flight 93 along with the other passengers and crew, Chris Gray who worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, and Tom McCann who lost his life responding to the scene while working for the NYC Fire Department. To honor all their memory and give comfort to all who lost someone on that tragic day, we will celebrate the 19th annual walk. We hope you can join us
And if you still want to support the walk now, you may do so at our web site. Thank you.
