10th Annual Heroes for Children 5K and Family Fun Run/Walk
Speaking of the Heroes 5K, we are happy to announce that registration is open!
On October 21, there will be a 5k race, AND a Family Fun Run/Walk, at Essex County South Mountain Recreational Complex in West Orange.
The 5K run begins at 9am, with packet pickup beginning at 8am. The family fun run/walk, which is a total distance of 1.8 miles (one lap around the reservoir), begins at 10am. Fun family activities – including face painting, balloon animals, popcorn and cotton candy, Batman and his Batmobile, and $5 same-day admission to the Turtle Back Zoo – will be available throughout the morning.
We would love to see you there, but if you can’t make it, there is also a VIRTUAL OPTION!
From October 14th through the 21st, there will be the Heroes for Children 5K Virtual Run, Walk, or Ride. Participants who choose the virtual option will have a week, October 14th-21st, in which to run, walk, or bike their 5K distance. During that time, we will have social media challenges and contests with giveaways, for which our sponsors are able to include promotional prizes!

So come on out (or stay close to home and be virtual) to support NJCA and raise funds for Child Advocacy Centers and Multidisciplinary Teams in all 21 counties,
