Welcome to our 7th Annual Join Hands 5k!  

The last two years have proved challenging for so many of us, and the current climate can be somewhat confusing, so we are excited to offer our Hybrid race again this year!  What's a hybrid you ask?  A hybrid race allows options -  participation can either be in-person or virtually from wherever you are.  Don't feel comfortable running in large groups right now? No worries, you can register for the virtual race and run/walk in your neighborhood, on your treadmill or anywhere you like!  Miss seeing people in real life and ready to kick some asphalt in Saddle Brook?  We got you - just register for our in-person race and we'll see you on September 18th!  See, options 😀

In-Person vs. Hybrid Race FAQ's



What's the Difference? 

The easiest explanation is that the In-Person race is....get ready for person

and the virtual guessed it.... is not 😊

Other differences:  In-person run is timed using a chipped race bid on a certified course, which we provide to you along with our amazing race shirt  

The virtual run is not timed and you'll need to print your own bib (not necessary but totally makes you look legit when running your 3.1 miles).  

Aforementioned amazing race shirt is not included but you purchase one for an additional $10. 


* What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is a race that you can run or walk wherever you choose – on the road, in a park, at a track, or at home on a treadmill. You get to run your own race, at your own pace! You can run by yourself or with a group of friends.  Want to make it even more fun?  Grab some friends from another town/city and start your race at the same time!
* How Does it Work?
Simply sign up for our virtual race and then run/walk wherever you want 
* What About Race Bibs?
You will be able to print your race bib right at home from the race site! More info to follow
* Can Anyone Participate?
Yes!  We encourage participants of all ages and ability levels!
* Will I Need to Report my Time?
Nope!  You don’t need to upload your time.  However, we’d love to see your photos!
* Can I Share Photos?
YES!  We would love for you to tag your photos with #TCFJH5K and share them by uploading them to our race site  - more info to follow.
* Do I Have to Register to Donate?

TCF Ambassador of Hope

The TCF Ambassador of Hope recognizes an individual or group of individuals that has gone above and beyond in giving of their time and talent for the benefit of The Tomorrows Children’s Fund and the patients and families we serve. Their interactions with our families, volunteers, and staff have been genuine and compassionate, demonstrating a huge heart for the cause.  They are dedicated to improving the lives of the TCF families by alleviating suffering while supporting and contributing to the welfare and well being of those in need. They have proven themselves to be true advocates for children with life threatening illness by going the extra mile in providing resources, guidance, and services that enrich the lives of the children and families we serve in our community.
The 2021 TCF Ambassador of Hope was Carlie Cord!
Carlie came to HackensackUMC more than 30 years ago and was instrumental in the start of the pediatric oncology and hematology program.   Since then, Carlie’s unconditional and unwavering dedication has continued to provide hope and healing to patients and their loved ones. 


Stay tuned for the 2022 TCF Ambassador of Hope!
