Mayor's Day 5k

UNION, NJ - Runners and walkers of all levels are invited to join the Union Township Chamber of Commerce again this year at its Eighth Annual Mayor’s Day 5K Run on Sunday, September 23. A committee will be actively working over the summer to plan and expand this year’s event. Shake A Paw Center for Rescue and Adoption of Union has signed on as Major Event Sponsor. 

Held rain or shine, the race will start and end at Union High School on Cooke Drive, following a course certified by USA Track & Field.  Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with the actual race commencing at 9:00 a.m. 

Prizes will be awarded for various categories, and t-shirts and gift bags will be distributed to the first 300 registrants.

A portion of the proceeds will go to help defray the medical expenses of a local family, specifically, a six-year-old Union resident named Sabur Clark who was diagnosed in November 2014 with Stage Four Rhabdomyosarcoma ( a form of childhood cancer). The Valerie Fund at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center handles his treatment.

To register, go online to www.runsignup.com, and enter Mayor’s Day 5K. Further information is available by contacting the Chamber directly at 908-688-2777, visiting www.unionchamber.com or emailing the Chamber at executivedirector@unionchamber.com.

The day will also feature a Kid’s Run, organized by The Gateway Family YMCA, for grades K through 5 at the high school’s Cooke Memorial Football Field. This event will begin immediately following the 5K start at 9:00 a.m., with registration from 7:30 a.m.  The cost to participate is $12.00, which includes a t-shirt. This year, they have also opened up registration for the Kid’s Run, online, by clicking on 5K Run/Kid’s Run in the Events tab at www.unionchamber.com.
