From spelling bees to taking over residential lawns with pink flamingos, the Long Valley Junior Women’s Club has become entrenched in charitable efforts in Washington Township.

In 2014, the group is embarking on a new event, bringing families together outdoors for some fun and exercise.

The first-ever Long Valley Junior Women’s Club 5K Family Fun Run/Walk is set for Sunday, April 27 at 9 a.m. on the Columbia Trail. The event won’t be timed and participants will have the choice to either walk or run.

“Our hope is that we can provide an opportunity for families to get outdoors and be active together, while also being part of the community and supporting our local charities,” said event coordinator Kelly Pelesky.

Proceeds will go toward local food pantries, schools, fire companies, first aid squad, and foster parents of Morris County, Pelesky said.

The event will kick-off and end at the Schooley’s Mountain entrance to the Columbia Trail.

Registration can be done by mail or through PayPal on the Club’s website. Pre-registration is available through April 20 by going to lvjuniors.org or sending a check to P.O. Box 98, Long Valley, New Jersey, 07853. Checks should be made out to LV Jr. Women’s Club. 

Adults are $25 and children 12 and under are $15 during pre-registration. Registration on day of the event will cost $30 per adult and $20 for children 12 and under by check only. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. Any questions can be directed to Pelesky at kpelesky@yahoo.com.
