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 The Action For Distraction, which has raised over $130,000 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!  
 
Since the Action For Distraction 5K is on May 4th this year, we'll be repeating our Star Wars theme from our 5th Anniversary race ... so get your costumes ready (or just come as you are), and join us once again this year
