Rubin Run: Raising More Funds Than Ever for People with Special Needs

Posted by: NJ Kids Team - May 03, 2013

Mother's Day, Sunday, May 12
10k Run 8:30; 5k Run/Walk 10 am; ½ Marathon: 7:45 am! FREE Brunch & Kids Carnival

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so plan for a meaningful celebration and join hundreds of families and runners in our community for the annual Rubin Run, where seasoned athletes, walkers and people just looking to spend some time with family and friends can participate in a fun, family-friendly athletic event that offers something for everyone.

The day will also feature a free brunch, a kids carnival from 9:00-11:00 am; free babysitting from 7:00 am – noon, pre-race stretches and warm-ups led by professional fitness staff from the JCC, precision CompuScore race-recording, great giveaways and trophies to the top three winners in each age category, medals for young runners under 10 and more. And, in honor of Mother’s Day, all participating moms will receive roses as they cross the finish line.

In addition to all the fitness aspects of the race, the Rubin Run also offers participants the chance to make a difference as a community, as all proceeds support healthy lifestyle programs and, as well as life skills and vocational training for people with special needs. Create & manage your own personal page, share your story, photos, goals & get sponsors.

The Rubin Run, now in its 32nd year, is named for Leonard Rubin, a past president and founder of the JCC, who established this community-wide athletic event to encourage and promote healthy living.
