The Christopher R. Arayata Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2016 to ensure that proper awareness is made to teenagers and young adults, along with their families, that mental illness is a real illness and it affects many people. To spread awareness of our mission, we are hosting our 2nd Annual Christopher R. Arayata Foundation Turkey Trot 5K/run. The proceeds of this event will help sponsor educational opportunities targeted towards middle-school students around NJ in order to increase their understanding of mental illness and promote healthy coping strategies. We hope to make this event a successful and enjoyable experience with your help. Come and join us! 

 

WHAT:
The Turkey Trot is a 5K Run/Walk on a USA Track and Field (USATF) sanctioned course that runs parallel to Overpeck Creek that boasts a nature overlook along the water. The course is mostly closed to traffic with minimal turns and mostly flat with a few rolling hills.  There will be water stations at approximately the 1-mile mark and the finish line.
