CANCELLED - Step Up for The Arc 5K Run & Fun Walk

After much consideration, while monitoring the local, state and national recommendations regarding Covid-19, The Arc of Union County has decided to cancel the 2020 Step Up for The Arc 5K Run/Walk.  Your safety, the safety of the individuals we serve, staff and volunteers are our number one concern.  We are so disappointed to cancel but it is the responsible thing at this time.  We appreciate your understanding, patience and support under these trying circumstances.

See options regarding your sponsorship, registration or donation. For questions, please email Justine De Meola at

For now, please stay safe and healthy.  We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s race.


Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon with The Arc.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Please watch out for communication from us regarding processing of your refund.
