On October 27th, Family Reach hosted its 8th Annual 5K & Family Fun in Mahwah, NJ. Families, runners, walkers, sponsors and volunteers all came together to enjoy a beautiful day at Darlington Park. Kids were entertained by all of the activities including pumpkin decorating, face painting, shimmer tattoos, trick or treating, and a challenging obstacle course, while parents enjoyed a relaxing massage. During the program portion of the event, the audience was touched after hearing from the mother of little 1 ½ year old Giza’s battle against bilateral retinoblastoma and how Family Reach was able to provide financial assistance for their rent.
A special thanks to all of our Reach Athletes who raised approximately $15,000, which contributed to the nearly $50,000 raised!
