On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA and the Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council will partner together to host a 5K and Family 1 mile walk/run. Our goals are “United” to celebrate and provide opportunities for health and wellness within the Scotch Plains-Fanwood community. Proceeds from “United for a Cause” will benefit Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council Health and Wellness Scholarship and Livestrong at the YMCA.

Livestrong at the Y is a twelve-week physical activity program free to members of our community recovering from cancer. The Livestrong program enables the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA to offer participants educational seminars, childcare assistance and services for financial management. The program focus helps recovering cancer survivors; “get their lives back” physically, mentally and spiritually. We want to give survivors the tools to continue their journey of health and wellness beyond the twelve-week program.

The “United for a Cause” 5K is a healthy community event that will “give” back to our local families and students. Many of our local students choose to pursue a career in the health and wellness field and this event will acknowledge a student(s) positive intentions by providing scholarship monies to put towards their college, school or training program costs. By providing financial support we hope to foster their desire to make our world a healthier place.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and donors in advance of this year’s race. Without your community support we could not offer this local event that benefits so many. We ask all of our participants to please patronize our local sponsors so that we form a strong community partnership. We look forward to seeing you all at the starting line!

Want to help raise money for this cause? Get sponsors for your run/walk. Click here to get started.

On line registration will close at midnight.

“Same day” registration will continue…you can register but need to pay at the Y…saves paperwork with registration.

Any questions regarding the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA please contact Sheri Cognetti or the SPF PTA Council’s Health & Wellness please contact Lina Isolda.

Can’t make the race, but would still like to support our cause!  We appreciate any/all donations at any time, Thank You! Want to donate to a friend/family member’s team?
