The Caldwell-West Caldwell Education Foundation Announces its Second Annual 5K Run for Education this Spring to Raise Funds for CWC Schools
West Caldwell, NJ, January 26, 2016 – The Caldwell-West Caldwell Education Foundation (CWCEF) has announced its second annual 5K Run for Education on Saturday, May 21, 9:00 a.m., beginning at James Caldwell High School. The 5K Run/Walk is sanctioned by the NJ Track and Field Organization and is a certified 500 Grand Prix event. Proceeds from this event will fund creative educational programs and new technology at the Caldwell-West Caldwell public schools.
Caldwell-West Caldwell Superintendent of Schools, James Heinegg, will start the race at 9:00 a.m. at the entrance of James Caldwell High School. Runner/walkers will head east on Westville Avenue, through beautiful Grover Cleveland Park and loop back around to the high school, for a total of 5K (3.1 miles). The CWCEF 5K is targeted at professional, as well as casual runners and walkers. “Last year’s event was such a wonderful success and we look forward to hosting our second annual 5K. We have designed the 5K Run/Walk for Education as a fun community event so professional runners can challenge themselves, while families can choose to run or walk—and everyone can enjoy the refreshments, Continental breakfast, DJ and shopping/vendors—while raising valuable funds for our students,” said Karen Treacy, CWCEF 5K Co-Chair:
Prizes will be awarded to two overall winners, as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd male/female place winners in five year age increments (10 and under—through 85+ years). The 5K Awards Ceremony is at 10:30am. Scoring and timing will be conducted by Tristate Timing.
