4th Annual Heroes for Children 5K Run and Family Fun


Sep 23, 2017
07:30 AM until 01:00 PM


Join your neighbors, community and friends for a fun-filled day and help us raise awareness about child abuse and neglect in New Jersey and learn about the difference local Children’s Advocacy Centers (CACs) and Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs) make in a child’s life. The Heroes for Children 5K (USATF-Certified) & Family Fun Walk will help raise funds for NJCA and CACs and MDTs in all 21 counties through registration fees and sponsorships. Medals will be awarded to the top runners in each age group. Superhero costumes are encouraged! Following the 5K and Fun Walk, join us for music, face painting, crafts, and other activities. Afterwards, take a walk to the Turtle Back Zoo or the playground. Receive $5 admission to the Turtle Back Zoo, Codey Arena, and miniGOLF Safari on the day of the event with proof of registration.


5K - $25; Family Fun Run/Walk - $15
