On Wednesday, October 2nd, Integrity House
hosted its annual community race: the Newark Corporate & Individual 5K
. For the past 29 years, we’ve looked forward to the participation of individuals who run and walk in support of addiction awareness and recovery.
Even on a record 90-degree day, our partners from the Newark corporate community came out! This year, we received more than 700 registrations from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Anheuser Busch, Ammon Labs, Arrival Crossfit, Audible, Department of Natural Resources, Edison Properties, EIC Associates, Gan Law, HUD, PSEG, Prudential, NJPAC, Newark VA, New Jersey Devils, McCarter & English, Scientia Diagnostics, and Volunteer Lawyers for Justice. Dozens of individuals who were not affiliated with an employer joined us, too.
Thanks to the generosity of the event’s participants and our Prudential, PSEG, Mooney-General Paper, and Paragon Restoration Corporation sponsors, we raised $20,000. These funds will help the men and women who are working to rebuild their lives at Integrity House sustain long-term recovery from addiction. We are so grateful. Thank you!
A special thanks to our friends at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey who volunteered their time to help us get ready for our event. We couldn’t have created the hundreds of race packets without them!
