On Oct. 7, the Integrity House will host the annual Newark Corporate Run in Washington Park in Newark to raise funds and awareness for substance abuse treatment programs and services. Already, people from East Orange, Newark, Jersey City, Rahway & Westfield, to name a few places, have registered.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the community outreach programs and treatment facilities at Integrity House, which provides addiction treatment and support services for almost 2,400 adult and adolescent addicts each year.
In addition to the race, the event will include lunch, entertainment, a trivia contest and an awards ceremony for individual and team winners following the race.
Runners can sign up individually or in corporate teams, but teams must be registered before the day of the race; only individual runners will be permitted to sign up on race day. Race day registration begins at 10:30 a.m. and the race will start at 12:15 p.m.
