The Cerebral Palsy League will host its annual 5k Run Saturday, beginning
at 61 Myrtle St. in Cranford.
The CPL is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving infants, children and adults with developmental disabilities throughout central and north New Jersey. They aim to help each individual reach their highest potential so that they lead happy lives while being an active and productive member of their communities.
“I am so grateful to all the individuals and organizations who have contributed to this annual event,” Executive Director Patricia Tekel said. “Your commitment and dedication will make a significant difference in improving the lives of our clients and their families.”
The 5k will feature a continental breakfast, games and activities. Additional races such as the 1 Mile Ramble and Kids’ dashes will be held with awards given based on age and gender.
The 11th annual event will feature USA Track and Field members, Miss Wheelchair New Jersey and friends and families of the Cerebral Palsy League, as well as representatives from Kean University.
CPL’s 5K Run was established to support CPL’s Center for Adult Services.
“The Cerebral Palsy League’s Center for Adult
Services offers adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to
continue moving forward with their aspirations of fulfilled lifestyles,” according to the organization.
