What is a virtual event? Essex County's Parks and Recreation guidelines during the pandemic, limits in person outdoor gatherings to a maximum of 500 people. Historically, several thousand walkers and runners have come together in Verona Park. For the safety of all, the decision was made to move The Valerie Fund Walk & JAG ONE Physical Therapy 5K Run to a virtual platform.

What else can I do to instill the same feeling of community and to make this a successful fundraiser?
The Valerie Fund relies on the dollars raised to help the children who live in our community. The Walk and 5K Run will support our mission to provide comprehensive health care for children with cancer and blood disorders. Every step you walk or run and every dollar you raise helps at The Valerie Fund Centers. Patients receive far more than treatment for their physical illnesses. Our philosophy is that to truly heal the children with whose care we are entrusted, we must treat them emotionally, socially, and developmentally, as well as medically.
