Children’s Specialized Hospital is proud to announce the ninth annual Walk n’ Roll on Saturday, May 16 at Johnson Park in Piscataway. Thousands of supporters are expected to walk or roll with registration opening at 8 a.m. This year’s event will support the hospital care for children with life changing illness or injury at the inpatient rehabilitation hospital in New Brunswick.
Children’s Specialized Hospital is the nation’s leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age facing special health challenges — from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to developmental and behavioral issues like autism and mental health.
Official Walk n’ Roll T-shirts will be awarded to individuals who raise $25 or more. Guests will enjoy a 5, 2.5 or 1 mile walk or roll beginning at 10:15 a.m. Families will also enjoy a free carnival with games, fun, food and prizes for all starting at 10:15 a.m.
Fundraising has already begun and teams are forming now. Sign up today at:www.childrens-specialized.org/walknroll. The Walk n’ Roll has grown tremendously over the years from only 750 participants its first year, to over 2,100 last year. In 2014, a record breaking $265,000 was raised. The goal for the 2015 Walk n’ Roll is to surpass that record!
Walk n’ Roll chair woman Kim Hanemann, vice president - delivery projects and construction of PSEG and Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation trustee, is instrumental in leading the event committee to yet another record-setting year.
“Our employees, vendors, and all of the PSEG community fundraise for Children’s Specialized throughout the year, and we all look forward to the Walk n’ Roll,” said Hanemann. “We especially enjoys meeting the patients and families that will benefit from our efforts. Their enthusiasm makes our hard work worthwhile. We look forward to breaking new fundraising records for 2015. ”
Additionally, Children’s Specialized Hospital is very excited to share this special day with 95.5 PLJ Morning Show radio personalities, Todd Pettengill and Jayde Donovan, as 2015 Honorary Chairs.
