Upcoming 5K run aims to increase New Jersey organ donation awareness

Written by:

Following successful events earlier this year in Paramus and New Providence, the NJ Sharing Network is reaching out to the Lincroft area with a 5K race to spread its mission of saving and enhancing lives through organ and tissue donation.

The NJ Sharing Network, which has served New Jersey’s 14 northernmost counties for nearly 30 years, is a federally designated organ procurement organization affiliated with 54 hospitals across the state.

Their 5K, sponsored by the group’s charitable foundation, is coming up on Sunday, Aug. 21, at Brookdale Community College.

In addition to race participants, NJ Sharing Network volunteers will be gathering in support of the cause.

Day-of registration opens at 8:30 a.m. on the 21st. To sign up now, or to find out more about the race and the NJ Sharing Network, visit njsharingnetwork.org/5k.
