Hop on a treadmill, go to a local park, or walk or run in your neighborhood to support services for people with disabilities and youth at risk in New Jersey!
The Community Access Unlimited virtual Ira Geller Walkathon runs the week of June 21-June 26. On June 26, individuals living near Warinanco Park in Roselle are invited to walk or run in the park. Registration details are available at caunj.org.
Walker or runner tickets are $30 and include a Walkathon t-shirt & race bib.
All event proceeds will support CAU programs serving more than 3,000 individuals and families in New Jersey, including housing, academics, employment training, day program and support services for people with disabilities and youth at risk.
These programs serve the agency’s mission to create an all-inclusive, accessible world where everyone can lead a fulfilling life as part of the greater community.
CAU’s annual Walkathon is named in memory of Ira Geller, a CAU member known for his advocacy for people with special needs who worked tirelessly to raise funds for the agency.
Walkers and runners are encouraged to invite friends, family and coworkers to join them virtually in the Walkathon June 21-26. Run or walk a route of your choosing and share your success on social media using #CAUWalk2021.
When you’re done, make sure to submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win a prize! Prizes will be awarded for most dollars raised, best team photo and most creative challenge.
