Purple for Pappas 5K

One Mission

The best race of the year!

The Purple for Pappas 5K is so much more than a race.  It is the opportunity for children, families, teams, coworkers, friends and colleagues to come together to enjoy a morning filled with music, prizes, food, games and fun.  Whether you’re a runner, walker, stroller, or prefer to volunteer, this race welcomes everyone. Purple was Aubrey’s favorite color and to us purple means power - it means positive energy, encouragement and empowerment and those elements are what this race embodies.  We’ve seen racers cross the finish line ranging in age from 7 to 72 … THAT is PURPLE POWER! 

Through this race we aim to build community spirit while raising money to support our philanthropy projects.  100% of funds raised will benefit The North Brunswick Township community via student scholarships, The Aubrey Pappas Club at Linwood Middle School, first responders, veterans, and other Aubrey Foundation endeavors.  Our work would not be possible without your support. We hope to see you on race day!
