Women Aware is hosting a 5K charity run on Sunday, November 11 at 10 a.m. in Johnson Park in Piscataway. This will be their first annual 5K event, and will raise money for and awareness of programs and services for survivors of domestic violence in Middlesex County.
Serious runners and walkers are invited to join Women Aware on a USA Track & Field certified 5K course. Official times will be kept, and prizes will be awarded. There will also be a one-mile leisure loop for younger participants and those looking to join in at an easier pace. Not ready to run? Food, fun, and music for the entire community will follow once the race concludes.
Participants can increase their contribution by fundraising through the Allstate Purple Purse Challenge in October leading up to our event. The top fundraiser will be awarded a Serena Williams-designed leather purple purse at the Moving Beyond Abuse charity run.
