When fellow blogger Meghan from Travel, Eat, Love emailed me about this next race, I just knew I had to share it with you. If you live in New Jersey and are looking for a June race, definitely keep reading!
Last summer, a family friend lost her younger brother and her mother just a few days apart. To honor them, she formed a foundation in their memory and has been working to give back to the community in their names via the Christopher and Susan Phillips Foundation. Events such as the Phillips 5k/10k trail run and walk help to raise funds that directly go to the charity to help out its various causes.
About the Phillips 5k/10
The 2nd annual Phillips 5k/10k trail run and walk will take place on June 9, 2013 at the Lewis Morris Park in Morristown, NJ. 100% of the race proceeds will benefit the Christopher and Susan Phillips Foundation, which helps support scholarships for graduating Jonathan Dayton High School students. This USA Track and Field Sanctioned event will begin next to Sunrise Lake and runs through the park.
If you are interested in running, definitely let me know! I would love to do it too! And please do not hesitate to spread the word about this wonderful foundation!
