Have You Heard About the Exciting New Addition to Our Monmouth Walk & 5K?

Posted by The Valerie Fund on 8/6/19 10:52 AM


Our 5K and Walk in Long Branch is coming up on October 13th and we could not be more excited! Supporting The Valerie Fund Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, we are supported by the amazing people at World Subaru for this inspiring seaside event.World Subaru will once again proudly partner with The Valerie Fund for their 5K Run and Walk (https://www.thevaleriefund.org/World-Subaru/) to be held on Sunday, October 13, 2019 in Long Branch, New Jersey. Last year, thousands of supporters and patients participated in the 5K run and walk with over $125,000 raised to help children battling cancer and blood disorders.

And this year is even more exciting as we'll be involving supporters of all ages. We've added a Kid Sprint to the day's festivities so kids can join in on the race fun. This 100-yard dash will be for our runners who are 12 and under but still want to race to support The Valerie Fund. Kids will feel a special kind of pride knowing that they are helping to support kids their own age who are battling cancer and blood disorders.

In addition, we are donating a brand new 2019 Subaru Crosstrek that will be raffled off the day of the event, with every dollar of raffle tickets purchased going directly to the Valerie Fund.”

A maximum of 2,000 tickets will be sold for $100 each. The live drawing for the winner will be done at the event on Sunday, October 13th. Participants may register online and purchase raffle tickets at www.thevaleriefund.org/World-Subaru
