Share the Care: 5k Run/Walk/Kids Race for Morris Habitat for Humanity
September usually means great weather for running, and once again RPI design build, LLC, a local builder based in Morris County, and The borough of Morris Plains, “The Community of Caring,” will be hosting a 5k Run/Walk on Thursday, September 6, at 6:30pm to benefit Morris Habitat for Humanity (MHfH). Following the 5K, there will be a Kids Fun Run for children ages 2 to14.
Early registration is available until August 25. Fees are $20 for the 5K and $10 for the Kids Fun Run. After August 25, the day-of-the-race fees are $25 for the 5K and $15 for the Fun Run. All net proceeds go directly to Habitat for Humanity.
From the starting point of Trinity Lutheran Church, participants in the 5K will run or walk on a USA Track & Field marked course through the streets of Morris Plains. Refreshments, food, entertainment and T-shirts will be provided to all preregistered participants. Children participating in the Fun Run will also receive a medal. Prizes will be awarded to the top female and male adults overall and by age groups. To encourage healthy lifestyles in our children, a cash prize will be awarded to the school with the most participants.
