ELIZABETH – On Saturday, May 11, Elizabeth area families and The Outlet Collection | Jersey Gardens will team up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in the fight against childhood cancer. The connect!kids walk is an event to give area residents the opportunity to help support the lifesaving mission of one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers.
The family-friendly walk will be held on Saturday, May 11, at The Outlet Collection | Jersey Gardens. The event will open for registration at 10:30 a.m. in the food court on the upper level, and the walk will begin at 11 a.m.
The event will include a family-friendly fun walk around the inside of the mall on the upper level. Activity and craft stations will be
set up for the children throughout the walk, and parents will be provided with extra one-day only shopping discounts. The walk and
activities are free. The Outlet Collection | Jersey Gardens is asking for a $5 donation for connect!kids walk tee-shirts. The Outlet
Collection | Jersey Gardens will match donations for the tee-shirt sales.
“We are excited to help raise awareness and funds to support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is to find
cures and save children,” said Crystal Stell, The Outlet Collection | Jersey Gardens Marketing Director. “The connect!kids walk will
truly make a difference in helping the children of St. Jude fight cancer and other deadly diseases.”
Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. No child is ever denied treatment because
of a family’s inability to pay. With a daily operating cost of $1.7 million, St. Jude depends mostly on public contributions and
fundraising events, like the connect!kids walk.
