Walk N’ Roll to Support the Kids at Children’s Specialized Hospital on September 15th

August 21, 2019

Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation will host its 13th annual Walk n’ Roll on Sunday, September 15, 2019, at Johnson Park in Piscataway, New Jersey. Thanks to the generosity of presenting sponsor PSE&G, walkers n’ rollers can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Johnson Park while trekking a 1-mile or 5K course independently or with friends and family.

Walk n' Roll brings together passionate people committed to raising funds in support of the children and families treated at Children's Specialized Hospital. Event check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by an opening ceremony and awards at 10:00 a.m. The walk will begin at 10:15 a.m. and end no later than 12:30 p.m. The kids carnival, opening at 10:30 a.m, will feature free carnival games, great food, and live music.

“Walk n’ Roll is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s heartwarming to meet the incredible children who come out with their friends and family to support our hospital and a great reminder of the dedication of our community,” said Phil Salerno, president and chief development officer of Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. “We’re grateful to all of our volunteers and our presenting sponsor, PSE&G, for helping to make this day possible.”

From chronic illnesses and complex disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries to developmental and behavioral issues like autism and mental health, Children’s Specialized Hospital is leading the way into a brighter future for children and adolescents facing special health challenges. Every step and every roll at this year’s event will support the programs and services at the hospital’s New Brunswick site, helping make it possible for all children to receive the specialized care needed to learn to walk, talk, eat and breathe independently - again, or for the first time.

Last year, hundreds of children, families, hospital staff, community members and pets showed their support and raised over $200,000 for Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation. Register, fundraise, and then Walk n' Roll with Children’s Specialized Hospital!  For more information or to donate, visit http://www.childrens-specialized.org/walk
