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!  


Thank you for making the 6th Annual Action for Distraction 5K on May 5th, 2018 such a huge success!!
Thanks to your continued support, we have now raised $130,000 for Goryeb Children's Hospital!  

We'll be back in 2019 ... 
In the meantime, check out our brand new Skeleton 5K on October 20th at Central Park in Morris Plains!  It'll have all the stuff you've come to love about The Action For Distraction, with a Halloween twist!
