Hard Grove Charity 5K Run & Walk
Sunday, April 2, 2023

Hardgrove 5k Walk and Run Flyer

Act Now Foundation was chosen as the race benefactor for the Annual HardGrove Charity 5K Run and Walk this year, and we were thrilled with the news. Every week, we visit senior and community centers to spread awareness about reducing one's risk of dementia by following the six pillars of brain health, and exercising is one of them! For this reason, we felt a fundraising event of this type perfectly matched our mission.


On Sunday, April 2nd, after months of hard work, the event finally occurred at Liberty State Park. The race started at 10 AM, was professionally chip timed and scored by BEST Racing, and officially timed by a USTF Certified tracker. In addition, a virtual challenge was available for those who wished to run or walk from a different location. After the race, medals were awarded to the first three runners in the male & female divisions, and the rest received participation medals.

Despite the freezing weather, Act Now Foundation is proud to say that the race was a complete success and that we welcomed almost 200 runners. We saw capable runners of all ages, and we had the opportunity to educate them about dementia while raising funds for families struggling with the disease in New Jersey.
