We’re very excited to announce the 3rd annual Madonna 5K!  This year, proceeds from this walk or run event will benefit Madonna Church and Tackle Kids Cancer, a local organization dedicated to essential clinical care, unique support services and groundbreaking cancer research needed to find a cure for children. Register early and save here!

In addition to the main run or walk event, and the two kids runs, we’re adding a beer and wine garden, food trucks, kid games, live entertainment and more!

Organized by members of the Knights of Columbus Council 1863, which is based at Madonna Parish in Fort Lee, NJ, and with the help of the dedicated team of teen and adult volunteers, our goal is to make the Madonna 5K and Knights of Columbus Beer & Wine Festival the must-go-to family-fun event of the year! Jogging strollers and dogs welcome!
