Berkeley Heights 5k Volunteers
Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts (WIPA) will host the 18th Annual Berkeley Heights Mother’s Day 5K Race on Sunday, May 12 at 9:00 a.m. at Memorial Field in Berkeley Heights. The course runs through neighborhoods on rolling hills and flats and is a chip-timed, USATF-sanctioned Grand Prix event (500 points) with digital clocks at each mile.
On average, over 1,300 runners register for the race and this year will feature student performances by the New Jersey Youth Symphony and Paterson Music Project, both programs of the Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts, along the route. The event will raise funds for free after-school music programming and includes a free Tot Trot as well as additional activities for the family to enjoy together.
For nearly two decades, the Summit Area YMCA proudly hosted the Mother’s Day 5K, bringing together Berkeley Heights, Summit, New Providence and neighboring communities. This year, as the Y works diligently to ensure the new Berkeley Heights YMCA is ready to welcome members in early 2020, they’ve passed the baton to Wharton to host the 2019 Mother’s Day 5K and continue the tradition of this important community event. The Y believes that their mission to transform lives through their programs and services is mirrored in Wharton’s cause to change lives through music in the communities both serve.
