Looking for a great day outdoors? Join the Make-A-Wish Walk and 5K Run and move at your own pace through the three-mile course winding through Liberty State Park, enjoying the lower Manhattan skyline and the very near Statue of Liberty. (Runners: The course is now USATF certified.) Registration begins at 9 a.m., the run starts at 10 a.m., and the walk five minutes later. There is also a fair with face painting and other kid-friendly activities, music, and food. Proceeds go to Make-A-Wish New Jersey, which has granted wishes to more than 7,500 sick children. Registration at 9 a.m., run at 10 a.m.
