FAIR LAWN, N.J. — Fair Lawn Sunrise Rotary is giving start the year off on the right foot with its annual 1st Day 5k on New Year's Day.
The Friday, January 1 run at Memorial Middle School will benefit Rotary Charities & The Rotary Gift of Life. The organization helps children in undeveloped nations receive treatment for heart disease.
“I’m proud to be part of the Sunrise Rotary," Fair Lawn Mayor John Cosgrove told the Daily Voice.

Trophies and medals will be provided to all top male and female performers. In addition, the first 350 registrants receive a free t-shirt.
This year there is also a 3K walk for families, as well as a raffle at the end of the race.
