He was passionate about living a balanced life between family, friends, the community, and work. This is a community he held close to his heart. The 5k is now coordinated by Bob’s 4 kids who are all alumni of WHRHS, with his youngest graduating this June. All proceeds of the race go to scholarships for deserving Watchung Hills Regional High School graduating seniors along with youth organizations in the community.
"The Bob Beckert Memorial Scholarship Run has been a significant community event and means so much to the many, many friends of Bob, who value this opportunity to gather annually to honor one of the finest people you could ever know.”
