The Junior League of Morristown, a women's volunteer organization with over 80 years of service in Morris County and the surrounding areas, is hosting Healthy Heroes, an event to teach kids how to be active and healthy as part of the Super Hero Half Marathon’s Healthy Heroes Fun Runs. The event includes a 50 meter dash from toddler age to 7 years of age, a ½ mile run for 8-12 year olds, and health-focused activities to help attendees learn the essentials for healthy living and resources available in our local area.
JLM will also be partnering with community partners to sponsor a child to participate in the race.

Show your little ones how much fun running can be! This 50 meter trot is a great way to introduce toddlers to the racing scene. (or just kill some time while you're waiting on mom or dad to finish the half marathon!)
The 50 meter run and the half mile run will both be held at Loantaka Park. The starting line will be near home plate at the South Street baseball diamond.
Superhero medals to all finishers!
