18th Annual Building Tomorrows 5K-Run, 2-Mile Walk, and Family Fun Fest to Return April 16

December 28th, 2015

On Saturday, April 16th The Arc of Essex County will host the 18th Annual Building Tomorrows 5K Run, 2-Mile Walk, and Family Fun Fest at Bloomfield’s Brookdale Park featuring a USATF sanctioned 5K, a fundraising walk, and fun fest complete with games, arts & crafts, music, and other family activities!

This annual event raises money to support The Arc of Essex County’s 1,500 consumers and the dozens of programs and services they attend each year. Back by popular demand, the Student Ambassador program is now accepting applications (deadline of March 1, 2016). Student Ambassadors will inspire and motivate people to become involved in the Building Tomorrows initiative. Ambassadors are the face of the event and use their personal stories to inspire, engage, and educate the community. Candidates for the program are elementary, middle school, or high school students with an intellectual or developmental disability or those who have a close tie to someone with I/DD.

If you plan to participate, why not make it a group event with your family or coworkers? Consider forming a team with family, friends, or being sponsored by the company you work for!
