Tomorrow marks another year for the Party With Purpose Hoboken 5K. This annual event brings out anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 runners to compete in a 3.1-mile race along Hoboken’s waterfront.
Runners of all ages and skill levels will be on hand to take part and support this great cause. There are not many race routes that can compete with the view this course offers from the Empire State Building half way through to the Freedom Tower seen at the start and finish.
Party With Purpose is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on raising money for local charities through organizing fun events in the process. PWP has donated over $600,000 over the course of its lifespan thanks to great events like this and other generous donations and local sponsorships.
