Giant Steps: George Martin completes cross-country trek for 9/11 heroes

Sunday, June 22nd 2008, 2:28 AM

Former New York Giant great George Martin has reached the end zone, completing a 3,003-mile cross-country walk to raise more than $2 million for ailing Ground Zero heroes.

This true Giant, all 6-feet-5 of him, strode into Embarcadero Park North in San Diego yesterday after a journey of stamina and discovery that began last Sept. 16 in New York and averaged 22 miles a day.

(...) 

He also lost 40 pounds and found a curious bonanza - more than $190 in loose change.

Martin's 13-state journey, including brutal 50-mph headwinds in Oklahoma and searing 114-degree heat in Arizona, would have made Lewis and Clark proud.
