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 please and proud of the work the YMCA is doing through LiveSTRONG at the YMCA 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 program, a physical activity and wellness program for cancer survivors.
Our race will again have a Super Hero theme in support of all of those we know and love who are battling cancer, so come dressed as a Super Hero to show your support!
We invite you to join us at this inspirational event on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Roosevelt Park in Edison.
Together, we are so much stronger.
WE WILL BE RAFFLING OFF A ONE-YEAR YMCA MEMBERSHIP TO ONE 5K PARTICIPANT! WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN AFTER THE RACE.
