janice garbolino 5k run & walk

Each year, walkers and runners participate in the 5k event in memory of Janice Garbolino, the former Health & Wellness Director of the Metuchen Branch YMCA. Janice lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002, and we keep her memory strong with our annual 5k. 

Janice would be pleased and proud of the work the YMCA is doing through LiveSTRONG at the YMCA Program in her memory. More than 400 people have benefited from this life-changing program as they traveled on their journey back to health and wellness.

All proceeds from the Janice Garbolino 5k support the LiveSTRONG at the YMCA free program, a physical activity and wellness program for cancer survivors. 

This year, we had a total of 238 runners and walkers.  Congratulations to everyone who ran and walked and we hope to see you in 2018!!
