As one of the biggest races in Hoboken, this event supports local youth charities, including the Jubilee Center and the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club. There is a fun run and other special events for the kids before the evening kicks off with 1500+ runners participating in the waterfront 5K. An after party along the pier is a great way for volunteers and runners alike to end a successful night.

The Boys & Girls Club in Hoboken had significant damage due to Hurricane Sandy. But thanks to donations and volunteers, the Thanksgiving Dinner will go on (with a few changes).
Each year, PWP sponsors and serves a feast at the Hoboken Boys & Girls Club during Thanksgiving week. No child leaves hungry thanks to the generous donors, who kick off the season of giving by attending our annual Thanksgiving Happy Hour Fundraiser.
And in the true holiday spirit, the Hoboken Boys & Girls Club will join the kids at the Jersey City Boys & Girls Club for a combined Thanksgiving Dinner. Located at 1 Canal St, Jersey City (corner of Grand St and Grove St), we are asking volunteers to arrive at 4:00pm to help set up, serve food, interact with the children and clean up afterwards. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and get additional information.
