On June 2nd, United Way of Greater Newark (UWGN) will host its 2nd Annual Virtual 5K Walk/Run on 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. A portion of the proceeds will support UWGN’s educational pillar, Newark Thrives!, and provide grants to select providers who are developing learning initiatives in Newark this summer. These programs will focus on art, STEAM, college readiness, mentoring, and sports & recreation.
