11th ANNUAL WALK n' ROLL
Walkers, Strollers, Wheelchairs
 


THE EVENT

Join hundreds of supporters at the 11th Anniversary Walk n’ Roll on May 20 to support Children’s Specialized Hospital. We’re raising money for the nation’s largest and best pediatric rehabilitation hospital. With 13 sites in New Jersey, we treat over 29,000 children with special needs each year.

We invite family, friends and partners of Children’s Specialized to come together to walk or roll a 5K or 1 mile course while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Johnson Park and the Raritan River. The Walk n' Roll is followed by a carnival for young and old, where everyone can enjoy live music, games and prizes and learn more about the special needs that our patients at Children’s Specialized face each day. To register or donate visit www.childrens-specialized.org/walknroll.

Johnson Park is easy to get to via Routes, 287, 18, 22 or 1 as well as the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike.

The park is ours for the morning and there is so much to do.....We'll see you on May 20.
