The Care to Walk/Run North Brunswick is an annual 5K event first held in 1999 to honor cancer survivors, remember those who lost their battles with the disease and raise awareness about how to reduce breast and ovarian cancer risk.
Founded in 1998 by a group of women in North Brunswick who had personally dealt with breast and/or ovarian cancer, Care to Walk/Run has raised more than $250,000 in support of cancer awareness, with proceeds going to The Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ).
This year’s Walk/Run will be held on Oct. 23 at the North Brunswick Township High School football field. On-site registration and check-in starts at 8 a.m., with the main event set to begin at 9 a.m.
The 2016 honoree is the late Diane Coopersmith.
