The "Frozen Fest for EMS 4 Miler" is a Virtual Race to benefit the all-volunteer South Orange Rescue Squad in South Orange New Jersey.
About the race: This virtual race is a 4-mile event. Participants may run, walk, or crawl the 4-mile distance any time between December 1 and December 20 at a location and time of their choosing. While we recommend you run your four-mile race in South Orange, you may complete your four miles anywhere! It's going to be cold in December, everything is more fun when it is a festival, and the race fully benefits the volunteer EMS squad in South Orange, hence the "Frozen Fest for EMS 4 Miler" name! All participants get entered into a raffle for amazing prizes from generous local businesses! You also have the option to purchase race-related items as well from our external store! All registration fees and merchandise purchases go to support Rescue Squad operations and supplies in our fight against COVID19!
About the South Orange Rescue Squad: Formed in 1952, the South Orange Rescue Squad provides free 911 emergency ambulance service to the residents and businesses in South Orange. The squad also frequently responds to Maplewood, Orange, and Newark. All EMTs on the South Orange Rescue Squad are volunteers and no one gets paid for their services. The squad does not bill for services and no tax dollars go towards the squad. The squad is fully funded by the generous donations of the residents and businesses in South Orange and Maplewood. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March, the squad has spent more than its usual budget on protective equipment, medical equipment, cleaning materials, and more. The squad needs your help to continue providing its life-saving services for free! The South Orange Rescue Squad is registered as a non-profit organization and all donations are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.
