Emmanuel Cancer Foundation 5K Run & Walk to Help Kids with Cancer

April 06, 2019

This is a rain/snow or shine event

The proceeds from this race go directly to the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation (ECF).  You can check them out at www.emmanuelcancer.org.    With a local office in Woodbury Heights, the organization has been providing free in-home support for families in New Jersey facing pediatric cancer since 1983.  This support is financial, emotional and material.


Hi, my name is Alan Conway and I have been a member of Road Runners Club of Woodbury (RRCW) for quite some time. On a personal note, I had a nephew Christopher who was diagnosed with leukemia at the young age of 7. He underwent treatment and was in remission for 4 years. Unfortunately, it came back and was just too much for his battered body- he went to be with his mom in heaven at the age of 11.


I’m sure many of you know of similar stories or know of someone who does. As long as childhood cancer is with us, the best we can do is to offer the families our support through this amazing organization.  


The services provided by ECF are invaluable when a family’s child is stricken by cancer. Won’t you please help today? Thank you and see you at the starting line!


Race t-shirts will be available for pre-registrants until Monday, April 1st. Registrants after April 1st may not receive a race t-shirt.  We also are having team awards for the 5k Race, come up with a team name, have 2 to 4 runners per team and compete with other teams.

Won’t you please help us by registering to run/walk…..making a donation….. or by sponsoring the race?
