  • Party with Purpose – 5K & Kids Fun Run

    Party With Purpose 5k and Kids' Fun Run
    Hoboken, NJ
    July 14th, 2009

    Party With Purpose takes it to the streets with our 5th annual 5K race along the majestic Hoboken waterfront. Last year’s event featured 700 runners and ranks as one of the best races in/around New York City. We expect this year to be even bigger and more exciting!

    The purpose of the race is to bring the entire community together including beginner and seasoned runners, families, and kids for an evening of fun, fitness and fundraising.

    The evening begins at 4:00 pm with games for the kids, followed by the start of the Kids' Fun Run at 5:00 pm.

    After the Kid's Fun Run, the kids will be treated to a party just for them including jugglers, games and tons of fun. Medals will be given to all race finishers.

    The adults take center stage with their race starting at 7:00 pm. An awards ceremony will be followed by a special happy hour.

    This event raises funds for two of Hoboken’s most important charities, the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club and Jubilee Center.

    If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please contact Scott Delea @ sdelea@nullgmail.com

    Charity: The Hoboken Boys and Girls Club and The Jubilee Center.
