5K Race to Wellness

Are You Ready? Our 3rd annual 5K to Wellness Race, in honor of the Boys & Girls Club Day for Kids, is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 16th 2023 at Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ.

One thing that the past couple of years has shown us is that isolation, depression, and anxiety can have an enormous negative effect on children, adults, and marginalized communities. The pandemic continues to show the disparities and lack of access to mental health care because of the availability of providers due to full caseloads.

That is why the goal of this event is to raise funds to support our Wellness department. We want to expand our capacity to serve more of Newark’s youth and their families. Won't you join us?
