MORRISTOWN, NJ – Are you "available" or "unavailable" this Valentine's Day? Runners will have a chance to choose their "Available" or "Unavailable" t-shirts to wear while running or walking in this year's Cupid's Chase.
Cupid's Chase 5K, sponsored by Community Options Inc., will take place on Saturday Feb. 10 at 10 a.m. The race will begin at 150-152 Speedwell Ave., and all the proceeds from the race go directly toward supporting people with disabilities in New Jersey.
Community Options is a national nonprofit organization that provides housing and employment support to people with disabilities. The first Cupid’s Chase 5K took place in 2009 and was so successful Community Options decided to take Cupid’s Chase nationally.
This year, the organization is estimating over 10,000 Cupid’s Chase participants across 40 cities walking, running, jogging and rolling (baby strollers and wheelchairs) to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Registration is still open online. Click here to fill out the form. A mandatory donation of $30 is required to participate. This price is valid through Feb. 9, but will increase to $40 the day of the race.
Participants will receive a goody bag, a finisher medal and an “Available” or “Unavailable” long-sleeve shirt to wear for the race.
