PARAMUS, N.J. – For the fourth consecutive year, Bergen Community College will sponsor the “Hero 5K,” which will support student military veteran scholarships and emergency funds. The event will be held on Sunday, November 10 on a closed course through the 167-acre institution and Orchard Hills Golf Course.

Organized by the College’s Wellness and Exercise Science Department and Veterans Committee will take place, the event features three races: an 8:45 a.m. wheelchair 5K; a 9 a.m. run/walk 5K; and a 10 a.m. family fun run/walk 1K for children ages 8 and under. A $25 donation includes entry into either 5K and the chance to win awards for the top three overall, top three male and top three female finishers. The first 300 registrants will receive a limited-edition camouflage-inspired race T-shirt. A $10 entry donation for the family fun run/walk includes a superhero cape for children. All participants can dress as superheroes – the best costumes will receive prizes.
