Chapter Spotlight: The Arc of Essex County

The Arc of Essex County recently held their 20th annual “Building Tomorrows” 5k run, raising more than $60,000 to support the agency’s programs and services. More than 700 participated in the 5K Run, Family Fundraising Walk, and Fun Fest. The Building Tomorrows event is part of The Arc of New Jersey’s annual Step Up for The Arc statewide initiative of walkathons held locally by every county chapter.

The event included beautiful design elements that showcased the chapter’s dedication to their fundraising efforts, and had their brand and logo front and center!

In addition to the USATF-sanctioned 5K Run, members of the community gathered to participate in a fundraising walk. More than 30 teams and 500 individuals participated, including the Essex County College Public Safety Academy Police Class BPCO 18-1 whose 78 members raised more than $3,000 and volunteered throughout the day.
