Save the Date: Building Tomorrows 5K on April 9, 2022 in West Orange

January 5th, 2022

We’re back in person and can’t wait to run, walk, and have fun together! On Saturday, April 9, 2022, The Arc of Essex County will host its 24th Annual Building Tomorrows event at the Clipper Pavilion in South Mountain Recreation Complex in West Orange, returning to an in-person gathering after two years of virtual events. The day will once again feature a 5K Run, Fundraising Walk, and Family Fun Fest with games, activities, and fun for all ages.

All proceeds will directly benefit The Arc of Essex County's services that support nearly 1,500 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. If you have never been to an Arc of Essex County event, this is the one to attend! The Run/Walk is a day where program participants, families, friends, staff, and volunteers come together to fuel The Arc's mission.

Don't want to run or walk alone? Looking for an opportunity for team building activities while supporting a great cause? Create a team with friends, family, or coworkers. Enjoy a day out and support a great cause. Additional event details as well as online registration will be available in the coming weeks at
