5K Walk and USATF Certified Race!

The NP/Share NJ 5K Race to Save Lives Through Organ and Tissue Donation will take place on Sunday morning, June 7.

This fun filled, family oriented day will include music, awards, prizes and amazing activities for all ages. The race draws over 6,000 entrants and spectators, and includes children’s races with prizes, music, vendor tables for onsite promotions, food, and prize donations. This is a great opportunity for our members to promote your business to families from New Providence and surrounding communities. Businesses can sponsor the event, sponsor the specific mile markers on the road course, provide food, have a table at the event, or develop a store-specific promotion or event on race day to attract runners after the race.

This race remembers those who gave, honors those who received, and offers hope to those who continue to wait…for the Gift of Life.

The event is presented in conjunction with the NJ Sharing Network, a non-profit, federally-certified, state-approved organ procurement organization responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue for the 4,700 New Jersey residents currently awaiting transplantation. It is part of the national recovery system, which is in place for the over 110,000 people on waiting lists.
