HOW TO RUN FOR FREE

This year we would really like to encourage runners to fundraise individually. So, once you are registered for the race, please set up your own fundraising page by going to the Donate section at the top of the race page and selecting “Become a Fundraiser”. If you are able to individually raise at least $150 or more, we will happily refund your registration fee! So please continue to share our story and our causes with your friends, families and colleagues and seek donations by sending your fundraising page to those who cannot participate in the race but would still like to get involved.

The Grace-in-Motion Race for Kids first started in 2012 to raise funds to bring education and financial assistance to the underprivileged communities around the world. Each year a new location is sponsored to aid in promoting youth education and encouraging the community through the younger generations. We here at GIM strongly believe that a global change begins with local impact.

This year, we want to shift our focus to underprivileged children in local towns in New Jersey by offering both recreational and educational programs. The net proceeds from this event go directly to provide scholarships to lower-income families who wish to send their children to 2019 summer camps offered by Youth Empowerment Services in New Brunswick and Sports & Arts camp in Teaneck.

2019 Y.E.S. Oasis Summer Camp

Located in a diverse neighborhood and reaching an underserved population, Youth Empowerment Services (Y.E.S.) invests in the youth of New Brunswick. In the summer of 2019, Y.E.S. will host their annual Oasis Summer Camp, which is open to children in Grades 4 - 8. Through Oasis, 30 campers can make the most of their summer with sports, arts, fun activities, workshops, and field trips. Through these activities, Y.E.S. hopes to broaden campers’ horizons and to help them to grow their confidence, social skills, and expand their understanding of the world around them.

2019 Teaneck Sports & Arts Summer Camp

For the summer of 2019, GIM will coordinate with the Township of Teaneck to sponsor its annual Sports & Arts Summer Camp.  The Camp is open to kids Grades 4 to 9 and provides a fun and inclusive environment for them to learn and play in the summer.  Through funds raised through the race, GIM will provide scholarships to lower-income families who wish to send their children to the camp.

Information about the Teaneck Sports & Arts Summer Camp is available on the Township’s Recreation website.
