Registering Online and Fundraising for the 2010 Achilles Walk
The Walk begins at 8:00 AM, but registration check-in/pick-up starts at 7:00 AM.
Most of Team RSDSA goes along a shorter, 2-mile course (Map of 2M Hope & Possibility Course with Services of the Surrounding Area), but participants also have the option of completing the full 5-mile course.

Traveling to New York City
New York City has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Flying into JFK or LaGuardia is typically easiest and the least time-consuming. From JFK, it's a (one-hour) $45 flat-rate taxi ride to anywhere in Manhattan. From LaGuardia, it's about a (30-minute) $40 metered cab ride to Midtown Manhattan. Rides from Newark cost at least $40 (plus tolls), and can take more than 90 minutes. Don't forget to tip your driver 15-25%.
To save some cash, try the group shuttles that are available at all three airports for about $14/person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. You can also take public transit from any of the airports for as little as $7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairs.
