June 2 is Global Running Day 2021, a worldwide celebration of running that will virtually unite people across the world in a global effort to encourage wellness and strengthen community. No matter where or how you move your feet, whatever your #ReasontoRun, let’s Run United.  Run or Walk Anywhere to support the work of United Way of Greater Newark and make an impact on our community.

While many of us are eager to put last year behind us, members of our community, including families and small business owners, are facing increased economic hardships.  During these times, we have an opportunity to support one another.  As social distancing forces us apart, compassion and connection continue to defy that distance.  With your help, United Way of Greater Newark will continue to support our community and make it through these hard times together.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

The struggles of those living in the communities within our footprint are interconnected, and we’re focused on addressing them holistically. Financial instability has a substantiated impact on the health and longevity of low-income individuals and can negatively affect the long-term education success of children and adults. Improved financial well-being leads to stronger, healthier households. A healthier household—economically and physically—directly correlates to reduced absenteeism and higher graduation rates. When the root causes of these problems are addressed as opposed to simply the end result of poverty, we can work to prevent recidivism and start to see long term success among these populations.
