Footsteps For Families
Walk over the Hudson

SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2020  
1 pm - 4 pm

THE WALK WILL BE HELD RAIN OR SHINE.

Join us as we walk on the Walkway!  
The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge and spans 1.28 miles over the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie to Highland. We will meet on the Poughkeepsie side, walk across the bridge and back (approximately 2.5 miles round trip).   This will be a wonderful day to be outside and enjoy the amazing views from above the Hudson River.  

Help us make a difference in the lives of families with critically ill children from the Hudson Valley and beyond.

Create a team! Invite your family, friends and co-workers to walk with you! Or if you can't join us that day, support us by being a virtual walker.
