Registration opens May 17th for the 4th annual New Jersey Children's Alliance Heroes for Children 5K and Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, September 23rd at the Clipper Pavilion within the South Mountain Recreation Complex in West Orange. Get your family and friends running this USATF Certified 5K around the reservoir– and if walking is better, that’s fine, too! Register for either the 5K or the 1.7 mile Fun Run/Walk. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome. Form a team and come together for a great cause. Superhero costumes are encouraged!

“Everyone is welcome to run or walk on September 23,” said Pete Boser, NJCA Board President, “Please join us to support those who investigate abuse, help children heal from abuse, and hold offenders accountable. We are asking the people of New Jersey to come out and help us help child abuse victims become survivors.”

There will be music, face painting and more including the scenic walkway around the Orange Reservoir, Swan Paddleboats, the Treetop Adventure Course, and the Regatta Children’s Playground. Thanks to Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo Jr. and the Essex County Cares program, registered participants receive $5 admission to the Turtle Back Zoo, ice-skating at Codey Arena and the miniGOLF Safari on the event day.

Through registration fees and sponsorships of this event, NJCA raises awareness and funds to support county-based Children’s Advocacy Centers and Multidisciplinary Teams throughout the state. These are child-friendly places that help abused children heal by providing comprehensive and coordinated responses to reports of child abuse. “We encourage everyone to come out and be a hero so all abused children can have a bright future,” said Chairwoman Nydia Monagas.
