Action for Distraction 5K Family Fun Run - getting gaming consols for kids at Morristown Memorial Hospital
You never know when illness or injury is going to strike a child in your life or the life of someone you know.  Zach Rice was 9 when he got sick, and spent the next 2 years in and out of hospitals.  But he also spent them creating this event, which has raised over $75,000 towards helping to distract kids from their pain while at Goryeb Children's Hospital. Come support him ... and the 50,000 kids who need treatment there annually ... again this year!

Thank you for coming out to the 5th Anniversary Action For Distraction 5K!  We hope you had as much fun as we did ... please consider taking this brief survey so that we can make the race even better for next year!
