This years Heroes for Children 5K Run, Bike or Walk be virtual. Participants may complete their run, walk or bike anytime between October 24, 2020 and October 31, 2020, at any location you choose. You may do all 3.1 miles at once, or break up the distance over several days. All participants will receive a t-shirt and there will be a photo contest for prizes. Participants that register before September 30th are guaranteed to receive their t-shirt prior to the event week. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a sharp increase in demand for services to support children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse. Child Advocacy Center staff and partners are essential. CACs have been open during the pandemic to ensure that child victims of abuse may begin their healing journey.  Child Advocacy Center services are one, if not the primary, safety net for abused children.

Submit your selfies and photos to our Facebook or Instagram pages or via email with the hashtag #NJCA5K2020 by November 1st. 

Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:

Best View on My Run/Walk/Ride: Post a picture of your walk/run/ride scenery.  Winner will receive a $25 gift card to Shutterfly to capture all their “best views” & memories.

Dogs Need a 5K Too!: Post a picture of your canine walk/run/ride buddy.  Winner will receive a $25 gift card to Chewy.com so you can stock up on dog treats.
