MILLBURN, NJ - The American Red Cross will host its 10th Annual Run for the Red 5K Race and Walk on Sunday, December 6 in Millburn. The community event is being coordinated with the help of Investors Bank as official sponsor and partners including Millburn Free Public Library, Sneaker Factory, TAPinto Millburn, Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Millburn. Event co-chairs Barry and Pat O’Brien of Short Hills expect this year’s race to be the largest in the event’s history.

“This is a terrific event for competitive runners, casual joggers and walkers alike,” says Barry O’Brien. “This year we are also calling on our participants to raise funds through a great online feature to maximize our success for the mission of theRed Cross.”

Teams of walkers and runners are welcome to participate in the race and can compete for fundraising prizes and race awards to 5K finishers by age group and by team. The event offers participants a community day complete with door prizes, a DJ, snacks and hot chocolate after the race and team photos.
