Greetings,

    After a successful first annual 5K Run in 2019 with over 250 people participating and your generous support, we are excited about the second one coming in June 2021. On behalf of EKAM USA, we would like to invite you to this great event organized to raise the funds to support EKAM USA. We are also looking forward to your donations and/sponsorships for the Run.

    All the funds raised for the event will be donated to EKAM USA and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to local organizations in NJ supporting children’s mental health. EKAM USA is run by volunteers as such there’s absolutely no overhead in the operating costs.

    Event Details:

    Location: Oak Ridge Park, 136 Oak Ridge Rd, Clark NJ

    Our Generous Sponsors

    The North & Central New Jersey chapter of EkamUSA was founded in August 2018. Through various events in the past 3 years, we’ve helped raise awareness and funds for Ekam’s commitment to improving maternal and infant health in the rural areas of India.

    In June 2019, we hosted a 5K run in Raritan Rahway Park and raised over $19,000 for Ekam projects. The funds went towards supporting various projects such as building an eye care facility in Salem, Tamilnadu, and providing meals in hospitals. We also organized other fundraising events like lemonade stands, bake sales, and even an annual Superbowl pool. In addition, we volunteer in the local NJ area and engage in projects such as cooking food for a homeless shelter and conducting arts and crafts with adults with autism.
