The 7th Annual Share the Care 5K Run/Walk took place yesterday at Central Park of Morris County in Parsippany.

RPI Design Build, LLC, a local builder in Morris Plains, hosted the event for the 7th year in a row.

The story behind the Share the Care 5K Run/Walk began 7 years ago with Denise Wendorff, wife of builder, Matt Wendorff of RPI Design Build, LLC wanted her children to know what community service was all about.

It was at that time, RPI Design Build, LLC, partnered up with Morris Habitat for Humanity and the Morris Plains Police Department to create and carry out the first Share the Care Run/Walk.

The first Share the Care Run/Walk had 175 participants and this year those numbers grew to  412 participants.

The Morristown Wildcat 6th grade football team along with coach Bergwall, handed out water to racers as they passed mile marker 1. 

Proceeds from the Share the Care Run/Walk go to Morris Habitat for Humanity, an organization that  provides affordable housing for families in the Morris Area.
