The weather’s beautiful now, so this Sunday, why not get out and enjoy it, stretch your legs, and raise money for a good cause?

For those of you with four-legged loved ones, the BarkFest Dog Walk and Festival will be held at the Upton Pyne Estate in Bernardsville, starting at 11 a.m. To learn more, click here.

Know someone who’s been affected by arthritis? Join the Arthritis Walk at the Loantaka Brook Reservation in Morristown. Walkers can register as an individual, as a team, or join an existing team. Registration starts at 9:30, the walk starts at 11 a.m. Visit letsmovetogether.org for more info.

In Princeton, the Auxiliary of University Medical Center of Princeton will host a Children’s Fun Run as part of the Princeton HealthCare Kids Marathon on the university campus. The 1.2 mile run and walk starts at the tiger sculpture at the north entrance of Princeton Stadium at 8 a.m. and finishes on the adjacent running track. A $15 registration fee will include a medal, t-shirt, and refreshments for all participants. Funds raised at the event will support the Pediatric Outpatient Clinic at University Medical Center at Princeton.

For those who prefer moving on water to moving on land, there’s the Barnegat Bay Festival, which celebrates the Bay and features vendors from all over the state as well as animals available for adoption from the Jersey Shore Animal Center. The Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wanamaker Complex in Island Heights.
