PARSIPPANY — The Rotary Clubs in our area are planning their 24th annual walk-a-thon for charity, “WALKFEST 2019”, and are inviting other charitable and community programs to join them and share the profits.
The Walkfest will be held on Sunday, October 13, at Waterloo Village, 525 Waterloo Road, Stanhope. The event will be raising money to support ending hunger programs in New Jersey, and traditionally allows other non-profit groups to join the effort and keep 50% of the money they raise.
Any legitimate community or charitable program may participate. Youth programs, sports teams, religious groups, booster clubs, Women’s Clubs and school clubs are some of the other outside groups that are welcome to join this effort.
Each group simply registers with the Rotary program, enlists pledges for their walkers, enjoys a one-hour stroll in a lovely park and then gets a check in the mail for their own program. At the same time they are aiding the work of Rotary Clubs in support of food pantry programs throughout New Jersey.
Corporate sponsors of this year’s event include Provident Bank, The Hanover Manor, Live the Lake NJ, Logan and Logan CPA, Blue Foundry Bank, Applebee’s Bar & Grill and Portofino’s Restaurant in Oak Ridge.
