After-School All-Stars New Jersey returns to in-person fundraising with a Walk and Hike fundraiser on Saturday, June 10th, 2023

Newark, New Jersey,

After-School All-Stars New Jersey is back to in-person fundraising activities with the return of our 5K Walk & Hike!

The ASAS New Jersey TrailBlaze event will occur on Saturday, June 10th, 2023, held at the beautiful South Mountain Reservation in West Orange, New Jersey. This event marks our first in-person fundraiser since the Coronavirus-19 Pandemic and the arrival of our new Executive Director, Dr. Naima Ricks.

“With your support, we will be able to continue to support approximately 2000 students during our after-school and summer programs. We are proud to provide comprehensive programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life. Thank you for your support in lighting the path which leads our youth.” - Dr. Naima Ricks

This year’s theme is “Walking the Path to Enrich the Rising Generation of Leaders”. It is quite fitting as our chapter has grown exponentially since our last 5K Walk & Run. With the amazing opportunity at hand, we look forward to a successful fundraiser that will boost the chapter in our mission to provide quality enrichment programming for our scholars.

“Since the start of our chapter, ASAS New Jersey has blazed trails that have impacted our All-Star scholars and community. As our path continues to grow, I encourage you to contribute as we keep our stars continue to shine.” - Tim Hepplewhite, ASAS NJ Advisory Board Chair
