How does funding help?

The annual NICUSTRONG Walk helps fund innovative treatment, cutting-edge equipment to provide exceptional care, and patient and family needs of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Hackensack Meridian Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital. 

Since its inception in 2018, money has helped fund life-like manikins for vital education purposes, parent programs and more!

With your help, we can raise even more this year and make a big impact for current and future families. We are excited to continue to do great work together!

Important Information about Registration:

Registration includes a t-shirt (if registered by August 12th) and access to the walk festivities! Last year festivities included face painting, balloon artist, tattoos, coloring station, access to the playground, DJ and access to a train OR carousel ride at Van Saun Park after the walk. More details to come on 2020 event activities.
