USATF Sanctioned Event/Certified Course

The 2nd Annual Run4Rare presented by CureARS is set to return on May 13, 2023 at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater, NJ (New Location!!). This course is a USATF Certified Course (NJ22033JLW).

All of you are making a difference for children and families who fight these rare degenerative brain diseases known as the Mitochondrial ARS Disorders. Every 30 minutes a child is born who will develop a rare mitochondrial disease by the age of 10. There currently is no approved treatment option.

CureARS is a parent organization (founded by two mom's) supporting families and funding research that could lead to life-saving treatments for their children and others affected. Ashley Rowland is a Raritan Resident and co-founder of CureARS. 

Our Goal 

We are raising $30,000 to continue to fund research for treatment and cures!
