About Essex County Justice Center 5K

The 2nd Annual Essex County Family Justice Center 5K - “Race for Hope 2019“ - will take place on Sunday, June 2, 2019 in Oak Ridge Park located in Clark, New Jersey. The event will benefit victims of domestic violence in Essex County. Funds raised will help the Family Justice Center provide safety planning and emergency assistance to victims fleeing an abuser, including meals and transportation, formula, diapers, window and door alarms, cell phones, and personal safety devices. Funds will also support the community of HOPE created by the FJC for survivors moving past crisis and rebuilding their lives. 

The race is a fantastic way to support the mission of Essex County Family Justice Center and spend the morning with an amazing group of charitable individuals like yourself. There will be a pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer and live DJ. Other features of the race include:

  • All Abilities – Run or Walk
  • Chip Timed
  • Race T-Shirts, Bibs, and Finisher Medals
  • Top Finisher Awards and Top Fundraiser Awards

Every dollar of the first $10,000 raised will be matched at 100%. Give $50 and ECFJC will receive $100! Keep watch as our donations grow. When we reach our goal we will receive our match!
