Description

Now Announcing Wave 2!  Wave 2 will Start the Challenge on June 1 - Aug 1.  You still have 62 days to complete the distance you choose!  Wave 1 Registration is now closed. 

CompuScore Productions presents to you The New Jersey Virtual Challenge.  We want to bring the running community back together, virtually. We miss seeing all of your smiling faces in real life and until that can safely happen again, we want to see your photos and watch your miles accumulate.  We are bringing to you several events to keep you going (#KFG).  Pick your distance or chose the Toll Booth Challenge or the Jersey Devil Road Tour Challenge. You will have 62 days from your wave start time to complete the total miles from the event you choose.  You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside as long as you log the miles. You do not have to run or walk each day, you just have to finish the total distance in 62 days. You will be sent a reminder each day to log your distances as well as daily updates with your location and cumulative distanced logged.  You will also see how you place among the other participants daily.  

Wave 1: May 15-July 15
Wave 2: June 1 - August 1
Wave 3: We have created a new challenge instead of wave 3.  Check it out here: Run the North East Corridor Virtual Challenge

We have two Charities to choose from for additional donations.  A portion of proceeds will go to both Charities. 

For two decades, CASA for Children has provided support to our communities’ most vulnerable members – children in foster care. 
Our mission is to train and supervise community volunteers, appointed by the Family Court, to advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.  Our volunteers are assigned to one child, or a sibling group, and stay with that child throughout the entire time the child is in foster care – on average more than 2 years.  CASA Advocates often become the one consistent adult in the child’s life, and those bonds and their impact lasts a lifetime.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), a member of Feeding America®, has been delivering food, help and hope across the state for 45 years. Last year, CFBNJ provided nutritious food for over 50 million meals through its network of more than 1,000 community partners including pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, mobile pantries, and child and senior feeding programs. For our hungry neighbors, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is the powerful agent of change that fills the emptiness caused by hunger and provides resources that are essential to earning a sustainable living.  

The FoodBank is a primary disaster relief responder in the state, and we are in the midst of a major relief effort to address the COVID-19 crisis. We are working to ensure access to nutritious food for vulnerable individuals and families and to meet the growing need. We are also working to create emergency meal kits with nonperishable foods, which can sustain a family for several days. For more info: cfbnj.org
