Building Tomorrows 5K Run/Fun Walk-Postponed
Apr 25 @ 9:00 am

Our Chapter will be participating in the Building Tomorrows 5K Run, Family Walk, and Fun Fest in West Orange, NJ. The event will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2020. It’s a wonderful, family friendly event that draws runners and walkers from across northern New Jersey as well as New York City. The run and walk route is around a scenic, tree-lined reservoir, and afterwards is the family Fun Fest complete with live music, food, games, and more. It’s really a great day to be with family and friends all while supporting children and adults with Autism, Down syndrome, and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.
