The Run for the River is an annual fundraiser for the Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA). MWA is a non-profit organization formed by residents of the Musconetcong Valley in 1992. Our mission is to protect and improve the Musconetcong River and its watershed resources through education and outreach programs to local schools, landowners, and municipal officials. In addition, MWA conducts river cleanups and stream bank restoration projects.
Funds generated by the MWA Run for the River will be used to support the MWA education program, River Watcher program, hiking and paddling trips, River Talks, and more.
