The Super Bowl is around the corner and before the Lombardi Trophy makes the 27-mile drive from Tiffany & Co. in Parsippany to MetLife Stadium, you’ve got a chance to run a 5k around the Garden State Plaza.
The Big Game 5K “One Run, Many Lives Touched” is set to begin at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. Prospective participants can find registration information here.
A 1-mile walk inside the mall is also scheduled along with a 5k walk outside with the runners.
Former NFL players Joe Morris and Bruce Harper will both be in attendance for a meet and greet.
All proceeds of the event will go to all of the supporting nonprofits of the Big Game 5k Committee. The participating nonprofits include the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Maria Fareri Children’ Hospital, Children’s Aid and Family Services, Adler Aphasia Center, Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bergen County, Hawthorne and Northwest NJ.
