The 5K run celebrates and honors those impacted by cancer, and all proceeds benefit the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA cancer recovery program. The program is 100% free to all cancer survivors and patients looking to regain their health and strength in a small group, supportive environment. LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA participants receive a free 12 week membership to the Y as they work on rebuilding muscle mass, strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and more. This meaningful program is offered in both the Berkeley Heights YMCA and the Summit YMCA.

Don't get stuck waiting in line for a Day-Of Registration when you could be stretching and having fun getting ready for the 5K!

 

The Mother’s Day 5K is a family-friendly event that will also include a magic show, Zumba, Tot Trot, and music. Runners, walkers, strollers, children, and leash-friendly dogs are welcome to participate in the race as individuals or as teams.

This year, the 5K event also honors the memory of Dawne Hausman, beloved wife and mother, active community member, volunteer, and children’s health advocate in Summit, NJ. The Female Ages 6-9 award will be given in honor of Dawne at the awards ceremony following the race.
