The New Jersey PCOS Challenge 5K Walk, presented by PCOS Challenge: The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association. is part of the largest national campaign raising awareness and funds to help fight polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
PCOS is a genetic, hormone, metabolic and reproductive disorder that affects up to 15% of women in the U.S. It is one of the most critical, under-diagnosed, underfunded and neglected areas of health which can lead to lifelong complications, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, endometrial cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and other serious conditions.
If you register as a walker, you will receive the official race pack, race bib and finisher medal.
Participants who raise or donate $100 or more will receive the Official PCOS Challenge 5K Walk National Campaign T-Shirt. Your registration fee does not count toward your fundraising total.
There will also be gift cards as a special "thank you" for those participants who hit fundraising milestones.
Registration for walkers or runners is $30.
