Greta’s Run Foundation is hosting the 5th Annual Greta’s Run 5k in Westfield, New Jersey!

Greta’s Run is one of the largest area races with over 1,300 people of all abilities participating annually. All proceeds benefit people with special & adaptive needs at the Reeve Foundation and Challenged Athletes Foundation.

Greta's Run is organized in memory of Greta Schoenemann, a Westfield High School freshman who died from injuries sustained on September 11, 2002, when a tree limb fell on her while outside at lunch. Her childhood friends,Ben Nanna and Jayne Ruotolo, founded Greta's Run in 2013, to continue the work Greta was already doing for her sister Elise, who has cerebral palsy, and the special & adaptive needs community at large.

All ages and levels of ability will have access to the course to walk, run, roll, or handcycle the 5K course. Volunteers will be present for course assistance/ escorting if needed. Awards will be given for overall male & female, top 3 overall wheelchair-racers, and top 3 male & female in each age group. Online Registration is open until April 21.
