8TH ANNUAL ACTION FOR DISTRACTION 5K 

Saturday, May 9th, 2020

Loantaka Brook Reservation, Morristown, NJ

You never know when illness or injury is going to strike a child in your life or the life of someone you know. The Action For Distraction 5K was started when a 10 year old from Long Valley realized the importance of being distracted while in the hospital. Zach Rice was in perfect health one minute, and spent the next two years in and out of hospitals with a rare septic hip infection and resulting Avascular Necrosis. Come support Zach, along with this year's "Face of the Race," who has recently  needed Goryeb Children's Hospital like Zach did, along with the 50,000 kids who need treatment there each year!

Whether you're new to the 5K scene, or you've done one before, and you want to improve your time, we have some training programs that will help you get ready for the big day!
