Let your feet lead you to the best race in the tri-state area: The Party With Purpose 7th Annual Hoboken 5K, Kid’s Fun Run and After Party on July 12.
Party With Purpose (PWP), an official not-for-profit organization, intends to make this the best year yet with funds donated to local charities, including two after school programs – the Hoboken Boys & Girls Club and Jubilee Center. Last year’s event raised close to $50,000 and attracted over 1,300 runners.
“The growth of the race each year is a testament to the dedication of our community coming together regardless of economic status for a day of fun, fitness and giving back,” said Scott Delea, founder of Party With Purpose. “We thank all of our volunteers, participants and sponsors for supporting the event and making a difference in this great town. Let’s make this the biggest year yet!”
The race is great for all levels from beginner to advanced and is USA Track & Field sanctioned. Walkers are welcome too! Prizes will be awarded to the top three overall male and female as well as the top three male and female for each age group.
Teams are now being accepted – so sign up with your friends, family, or neighbors – and earn various prizes. The 5K will cost $25 before July 1 and $30 after July 1. Sign up early to secure a spot and goody bag.
The fun does not end at the finish line. Join the after party celebration on the banks of the Hudson. Participants will enjoy live entertainment by New Tricks and delicious food and drinks.
Party with Purpose would like to extend a special thanks to these sponsors for their support:
