Why wee run the HoBOOken 5k

This will be our 4th year running the race (no walking!) with the whole family. And we may have more joining us from near and far... Before that, 3 of us, before that, just me. Rain snow or sleet -- we are doing it. We think all races should be in costume and for a good cause. All money goes directly to benefit the Hoboken Shelter. If you want to know more, I wrote a cracking good article about the race that also interviews the race director: https://blog.withings.com/2018/09/01/halloween-costumed-5k-charity-race/


The Hoboken Shelter provides food, shelter and supportive services to those in need in Hoboken, NJ. They help people move from the streets to the Shelter to a home of their own. Right now, the Shelter is on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle helping keep those in need safe and fed.

I have committed to fundraising at least $1000 for the Hoboken Shelter, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless in my community. With only $2, they can provide a nutritious meal to one person.

Please join me in helping support those in need in our community. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity!
