USATF-NJ Grand Prix sponsored event.  Business exposure reaches thousands.  Proceeds benefit the community of Waldwick.

Dear Race Participants,


On behalf of The Waldwick Chamber of Commerce, we thank you for participating in the 14th Annual Waldwick Chamber of Commerce 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk! As you know, this event was quite special, as it honored our brave, fallen law enforcement officers. Your registration fee enabled us to donate $1.00 for each entry to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S), a non-profit charity organization that supports the families of fallen police officers in New Jersey. 


Many thanks to those who personally donated to the Cole McKeon family. Cole, our young hero, is an inspiration to us all. Cole has been undergoing treatments at CHOPS as he battles cancer this terrible disease. Your generous support has raised $2,300. 


The event was a great success, and we could not have done it without your participation. On this day, we witnessed the women’s course record being broken by over a minute. Amy Van Alstine, from Midland Park who placed 4th overall with a finishing time of 17:36 ran an incredible race. Art Gunther, the overall winner, just beat out Chris Carcich by 8 seconds. Art Gunther ran a blistering 16:32. Congratulations to everyone who took part in this wonderful event. 


Thank you again, and we hope you continue to support The Waldwick Chamber of Commerce through future events, or by visiting our local Waldwick businesses.



We look forward to seeing everyone next year!
