SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Calling all runners and walkers! Holy Savior Academy will hold its 7th Annual 5K Run and 1 Mile Family Walk on Saturday, June 2. Proceeds from this year’s family-friendly event will benefit the school’s academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs.

“Holy Savior Academy’s annual 5K offers the school an opportunity to provide other programs for our children,” said Doreen Pustizzi, chair of this year’s 5K committee, adding that proceeds will help offset STEM and robotics programs as well as arts and crafts programs and athletics such as basketball and track. “All of these extracurricular activities, along with a well-rounded academic program, really provide our children the opportunity to grow.”

Both the 5K and the 1 Mile Family Fun Walk will start and end at Holy Savior Academy. The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. and take place throughout the South Plainfield community along a USA Track and Field certified course that is flat, easy, and fun for all ages and abilities.

“With only a few turns and a great course, this is a great 5K for both the experienced runner and the first time participant,” said Pustizzi, whose son is a third grader at Holy Savior.

There will be water stations set up along the 5K route and prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finisher in a number of age categories. Additionally, the first 100 5K registrants will receive a free event T-shirt.

The family fun walk will begin immediately after the start of the 5K and follow a one-mile course starting and ending in the school parking lot next to Sacred Heart Church. There will also be activities and games for the children.

In addition to walkers and runners for this year’s event, sponsors and/or donations from individuals, local businesses and organizations are also needed to help make this year’s 5K and family fun walk a success. Gold ($500), Silver ($250) and Bronze ($100) sponsorships are currently available and supporting sponsors, in kind donations and donations of goods are welcome. All contributors will be acknowledged in promotional materials.

“Many school families and members of the community come out each year for this event,” said Pustizzi, adding, “It is a great day to come out, especially before the end of the school year, and support the students at Holy Savior and get to see all the school has to offer.”

Holy Savior Academy, an AdvanceED accredited Middlebrook Deanery Catholic School serving students in pre-K 3 through 8th grade, is located at 149 South Plainfield Avenue, South Plainfield – next to the Church of the Sacred Heart.
