FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA (FSPY) and the Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council will host “United for a Cause," a 5K race and Family 1 mile walk/run on Tuesday, May 14, 2019.
Proceeds from “United for a Cause” will benefit Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council Health and Wellness Scholarship and Livestrong at the YMCA.
Livestrong at the Y is a 12-week physical activity program free to members of our community recovering from cancer. The program enables FSPY to offer participants educational seminars, childcare assistance and services for financial management. It helps recovering cancer survivors “get their lives back” physically, mentally and spiritually.
The “United for a Cause” 5K is a healthy community event that will “give” back to local families and students. Many of the YMCA's local students choose to pursue a career in the health and wellness field, and this event will acknowledge a student(s) positive intentions by providing scholarship monies to put towards their college, school or training program costs.
