HACKENSACK, N.J., April 30, 2013 - Perillo Tours has become a major sponsor for the YWCA Bergen County's third annual 5K Run and Family Walk on Sun., May 19 at Darlington County Park in Mahwah, N.J. The Woodcliff Lake, N.J.-based tour operator is donating an 8-day/7-night Costa Rican Family Discovery adventure to the first place winner of the fundraising event's Duck Derby contest.

"We are sincerely grateful to Perillo Tours for this incredible contribution to our 5K Run and Family Walk," said Laura DeLuca, Interim CEO of the YWCA Bergen County. "This sponsorship signifies Perillo Tours' commitment both to the YWCA and the local community."

Valued at $6,000, the trip for a family of four includes meals, tours, activities and first-class accommodations. Water- and land-based activities will allow travelers to discover Costa Rica's natural treasures, including the world-famous Sarapiqui River, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Eco-Termales hot-water springs and the Arenal Rainforest Reserve.

The winner will be determined by a fun-filled raffle where rubber ducks race across the park's Upper Lake. Ducks are $10 each or six for $50. Proceeds from this year's 5K Run and Family Walk will help fund scholarships for the YWCA's child care programs and summer camps as well as its healingSPACE Sexual Violence Resource Center, Bergen County's only provider of a 24/7 hotline for victims of sexual violence.

In addition to the YWCA's first-annual Duck Derby, the day's highlights will include an outdoor family fun area with bounce houses, face painting, music and food and beverages.
