Bringing our 18 year charitable fund raising total to $155,600, not bad for a small town race, and all thanks to our Runners, Walkers, Volunteers and Sponsors.
Our 19th annual Berkeley Heights 5K charity road race & fitness walk is set for Sunday September 20th, back to our normal 3rd week in September after being moved up last year to accommodate my 25th wedding anniversary.
Convenient On-line registration is open and downloadable paper apps are also available on our site www.berkeleyheights5k.com, plus you can view and download free event photos, check out our sponsors and please like us on Facebook as we are trying to get more hip.
One last thing, we need your help, if you could forward this message to your friends or post it to your Facebook, it would help us spread the word, without cutting down more trees for the paper.
Thanks again, and I almost forgot, we have some special offers like a 10$ gift card from the Sneaker factory for everyone who registers by September 10th, look for more to come in our next eblast.
