Harbor House "Color Run For Shelter" 5K
Harbor House, a safe haven for youth, is hosting its 5th annual 5K Run-Walk at First Energy Park (home of the Lakewood BlueClaws) in Lakewood, New Jersey on Saturday, November 1, 2014 starting at 8 am. This year we are adding a new and fun element with a color-themed event called Color Run for Shelter.

Participants will start out with an all-white t-shirt and will finish decked out in a spattering of bright, dazzling color. How it works: at each kilometer of the race, runners are blitzed by volunteers, sponsors, and staffers with a new color (1K is yellow, 2K is blue, 3K is green, 4K is pink, and 5K is… a “color extravaganza!”). And how’s this for a goodie bag: every runner gets a bag of color to put his or her own artistic skills to the test!

The event will feature a 5K Run, a 5K Walk and a one-mile fun run for the kids. In addition to the run/walk, there will be a mini kids fair, along with vendors and community resource information tables.

For more information, please visit the Harbor House Color Run For Shelter page.

Rails To Trails Cleanup

On Sunday June 22, a group from ORC cleaned up the "Rails to Trails" path. Stocked with garbage bags they walked up the trail, starting at William J Dudley Park at Cedar Creek, cleaning as the went along. Sandy set everything up and a nice group showed up to help. It was greatly appreciated.
