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, September 12, 2021. The 5K Celebration of Life is a special time of healing for those whose lives have been touched by organ and tissue donation. NJ Sharing Network invites you to spend a morning with their loving and supportive community, whether you walk, run, volunteer, or simply cheer on the crowd. This fun filled, family oriented day will include music, awards, prizes and amazing activities for all ages. The race draws more than 10,000 entrants and spectators! The event includes children’s races with prizes, music, vendor tables for onsite promotions, food, and prize donations.
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.
