REGISTER HAS ENDED for the 2014 Diversity Stride Walk-a-Thon
Thanks to all who attended the 2014 Diversity Stride!!
We had a wonderful time on a gorgeous Saturday morning in New Brunswick. Thanks to our walkers and sponsors we raised funds in support of our youth leadership programs.
Stay tuned for information about Diversity Stride 2015!
Annually in the summer, individual walkers and teams of walkers enjoy a leisurely 5K walk in a select New Jersey city park as a part of our Diversity Stride Walk-A-Thon. The Diversity Stride promotes community unity and helps to ensure our neighbors of all races, faiths, ethnicities, identities and ages know that they are valued and respected. At the Diversity Stride, you will enjoy cultural entertainment as well as food and refreshments and the sense of fulfillment that comes along with valuing diversity and promoting respect.
All Diversity Stride proceeds benefit our Youth Leadership Programs, which help to create more inclusive schools and communities. The diversity education and training we provide to students throughout New Jersey prepares them to serve as change agents, addresses bullying, and prepares the next generation to lead in our schools, our workplaces, and in our communities.
