The Union Catholic 5K will provide a fantastic fundraising opportunity for a great cause and will add a virtual component when the 10th annual event is held on Saturday, September 19, race director Edward Thornton has announced.
Mr. Thornton said the fundraising opportunity will be available for every runner who participates, and that all of the proceeds from the race will go to COVID-19 Relief Programs.
Mr. Thornton feels the great cause of the event and the virtual piece will make this year’s race the biggest one yet.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to help those in need, and having a virtual component that will open it up to so many more people who usually couldn’t do it and want to be able to support a great cause will bring more people than we’ve ever had before.’’
Mr. Thornton also said that the Union Catholic 5K, which will be preceded by a one-mile kids walk/run, will once again be part of Scotch Plains Mayor Al Smith's Wellness Campaign.
