We’re very excited to announce the 3rd annual Madonna 5K! This year, proceeds will benefit Tackle Kids Cancer, a local/global organization dedicated to essential clinical care, unique support services and groundbreaking cancer research needed to find a cure for children.
Based in Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation in Lodi, NJ, Tackle Kids Cancer has helped thousands of children, including 13-year old Briana Lopez, who benefited from the inaugural Madonna 5K and is now cancer-free! Proceeds from this year’s M5K will also benefit the ongoing efforts of Madonna Church to help the poor, sick, and elderly, and the environment.
This year we’re extending the Madonna 5K by adding an Oktoberfest, featuring food trucks, a beer garden, kid games, and live entertainment! With help from members of the Knights of Columbus Council 1863, which is based at Madonna Parish in Fort Lee, NJ, and the dedicated team of teen and adult volunteers, our goal is to make the Madonna 5K & Oktoberfest the must-go-to family-fun event of the year!
