Join us for a 5K Run and 2K Fun Walk to eliminate and prevent obesity at New Jersey's #1 zoo!

Our goal at Clara Maass Medical Center is to make sure that our community is healthy and happy. Research indicates that one in three Americans are considered overweight and/or obese. Recently the American Medical Association recognized that obesity is a growing problem and now officially recognizes obesity as a disease. This disease can lead to numerous health complications such as Type 2 diabetes, heart problems, and depression. The good news is, with proper education about healthy eating and active lifestyles, we can help eliminate and prevent obesity!
