Description

Lace up your sneakers and get training! The YMCA 5K Run and Fun Walk is just around the corner. This exciting day is full of activities all to support recovery and reconnection for cancer survivors through LIVESTRONG®  at the YMCA. 

 

With this funding, cancer survivors may participate in the LIVESTRONG program at no cost to them. 

 

CREATE A TEAM TODAY

We are looking for team leaders to invite friends and loved ones to join them in raising funds for cancer survivors. Team members can walk or run with you on the day of the event, walk or run virtually and still receive the event t-shirt, bib and medal or make a donation to support your goal. Team prizes will be awarded to top fundraising team, largest team and more! 

 

The YMCA 5K Run and Fun Walk is held in memory of Janice Garbolino, former Health & Wellness Director of the Metuchen Branch YMCA, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002. The annual 5K run/walk supports the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge, and South Amboy in providing a free exercise program for cancer survivors called LIVESTRONG®  at the YMCA which assists those who are living with, through, or beyond cancer to strengthen their bodies, minds, and spirits. 

Runners and Walkers are welcome.

Why do we race?

  • We race to support the LIVESTRONG at the Y program - a free physical activity and wellbeing program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.
  • We race because LIVESTRONG helps people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body by focusing on the whole person and not the disease.
  • We race to remember a loved one that lost his/her battle with the disease.
  • Lastly, we race because we are all SUPER HEROES!
