Step Up for The Arc of Somerset County is an annual 5K and Walk-A-Thon fundraiser that helps support vital programs designed to provide quality services and supports for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Somerset County. The Arc is the state’s largest non-profit advocacy and service organization supporting people with developmental disabilities and their families.
This year we are hosting a HYBRID Event with a LIVE in-person 5K and Walk Event (Dog Friendly), a Virtual 5k, and a Virtual Walk event.
In-Person 5K Event:
The in-person 5K event takes place in the early morning of Sunday, June 6th at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater Township at 8:30am.
In-Person Walk Event:
The walk portion of this event will take place proceeding the 5K at 10:15am -12:30pm at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater.
This event will take place starting on June 6th and end on June 16th, 2021. You can run this event any day from June 6th – June 16th!
This can be anytime, anywhere, and any day from June 6th -June 16th . This event can be completed in multiple days and can be anything from hiking, biking, or walking your dog!
The Walk event was traditionally the annual outing for our Arc Residential and Day Program adults to attend as a recreational celebration of spring with musical performances, dancing, and exercise coupled with a picnic lunch.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will not be hosting a picnic, however, we DO encourage family members of the Arc to attend to show support and continued advocacy for the work The Arc does in our community.
We will work within COVID-19 protocols for all patrons of the event and coordinate areas of the green lawn space for families of loved ones to gather. We hope to see you there!
