Over 4,000 walkers and runners will meet at Verona Park on June 15, 2013 to support children with cancer and blood disorders
[Maplewood, NJ, April 30, 2013]- On Saturday, June 15, 2013 Essex County's Verona Park will be the location of The Valerie Fund Walk and JAG Physical Therapy 5K Run. More than 4,000 people are expected to 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 $1,250,000 dollars.
The Valerie Fund is proud to welcome Investors Bank this year as a Principal sponsor. Many of the branches in the Essex, Morris and Union counties will be promoting the walk from mid May until June 15th. Razie Dauti, Vice President Market Manager said, "Investors Bank is honored to have the opportunity to support The Valerie Fund. We are proud to partner with The Valerie Fund for our second year in a row. We are confident that their talented team will succeed again this year in reaching their fund raising goal."
Walkers, runners, donors, and sponsors can register for the Walk or donate at www.thevaleriefund.org/Walk2013 or by calling The Valerie Fund office at 973-761-0422. All proceeds from the walk will support the comprehensive health care services for children with cancer and blood disorders. This has been the mission of The Valerie Fund since 1976 and is carried out in seven Valerie Fund centers across NJ, NY, and Philadelphia.
Last year's walk was an amazing success and raised over $1,000,000. More than 75 sponsors and the grass roots efforts of hundreds of teams made it happen. The Valerie Fund staff and volunteers were pleased to see the amount of people showing support for these children and families.Back to News Main Page
