Hard Grove Charity 5K Run & Walk
Sunday, April 2, 2023
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.
Music & Memories Gala
Thursday, December 8, 2022
In 2022, we welcomed almost 300 SUPERHEROES including members of other non-profit organizations, community activists, event sponsors, politicians, and business owners. We honored Hackensack Meridian Health & The Center for Memory Loss and Brain Health's Dr. Manisha Parulekar and Dr. Florian Thomas for their work in creating a new collaborative dementia care program with Act Now Foundation. In addition, we honored our caregivers for their relentless efforts to improve the quality of life of their loved ones until the moment they transition.
Your support has helped us continue to expand our mission to provide the community, resources, and education that our seniors and caregivers need to thrive. We hope to see you again at next year's 5th Annual Music & Memories Gala, 5K Walk, or Brain Health & Community Resource Fair! More information about these events will be made available on our website in the upcoming months.
TOGETHER, WE SHINE A LIGHT ON DEMENTIA.
