The season is nearly upon us, which means it's almost time to cheer on your favorite running team at our upcoming "5K Run/Walk For Warmth" Fundraiser, on September 02, 2013 at Johnson Park, in Piscataway, NJ! This winter year promises to be their toughest season in recent memory, but we're confident that our "Homeowner's Oil Scholarship Fund" will keep a lot of New Jersey's Homeowners warm for this coming winter session. 

Spread The Purple would be honored to gain support from any runners and specters for this run. So, come on out and "Run For Warmth," while given back to the community!

Our trusty DJ, electrifying Zumba Instructor; and Gourmet Staff of Chiefs  will be causing a ruckus before and at our 5K Run, along with our Timing Company, "Fast Finishes," but we still need your support. Tickets are on sale now, with the usual discount for our faithful supporters, runners/walkers, and volunteers.
