NUTLEY, NJ -  There's still time to register for the 2019 Nutley Educational Foundation Color-A-Thon taking place Saturday Oct. 26.

In the past, when the Color-A-Thon was organized by the Elementary School PTOs, we enjoyed getting into the action of the day and leaving covered in color. For 2019, the NEF is running the event and TAPinto Nutley is on board as one of several sponsors from the community. 

The color-a-thon 5K run/walk is the first major fundraiser of the Nutley Educational Foundation (NEF). In the past, Color-A-Thon's were coordinated by the elementary school PTOs, the last one drew over 1,200 participants and raised over $50,000. The NEF is inviting the entire Nutey community to participate for the 2019 event hopes to exceed past results in both number of participants and funds raised.

A large part of the Color-A-Thon is to inspire people to enjoy a more active lifestyle while at the same time building community. Everyone is invited, so this is a great time to call your friends and neighbors and enjoy a colorful walk in the parks.

Keep in mind, participants can walk the route, or even walk just a portion of the route - this is great opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy a colorful morning in Nutley's parks.

Registration is easy though the online portal Nutley Educational Foundation Color-A-Thon 2019

At the event itself, on-site registration will run from 7:30 a.m. and continue to 9:00 a.m. The 2019 Color-A-Thon will begin in Kingsland Park near the Gazebo.
