The Valerie Fund Walk and JAG Physical Therapy 5K Run will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2012 in Verona Park. More than 4,000 people will run and walk to support the children of The Valerie Fund. Registration to participate in this event is now open and the goal is to raise $1,000,000 dollars.
Walkers, runners, donors, and sponsors can register for the Walk or donate at www.TheValerieFund.org/walk2012 or by calling The Valerie Fund office at 973-761-0422.
