DANVERS — Northeast Arc, a not-for-profit organization that helps children and adults with, or at risk for developing, disabilities become full participants in the community, will hold its Run 4 InKlusion and Family Fun Fest on September 25, 2022, at Market Street Lynnfield.

“That is not a typo,” said Jo Ann Simons, President and CEO of Northeast Arc. “Everyone has a 5K, so we are going to have a 4K,” Jo Ann Simons. “Our Run for 4 InKlusion is a shorter run which makes it easier for more people to participate. For those who don’t want to run, we will also offer a 1-mile course that people can walk or roll. Northeast Arc is all about inclusion and this event mirrors our efforts.”

Registration for the Run 4 InKlusion begins at 7:30 a.m. on September 25, with the run/walk starting at 9:00 a.m. The Family Fun Fest part of the event which will run from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and include balloon art, bubbles, face painting and more. Attendees will also enjoy music, swag, and samples from some of the businesses at Market Street.

Registration is open now. Visit to register or create a team.
