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, who placed 4th overall with a finishing time of 17:36
ran an incredible race. Art Gunter, the overall winner, just beat out Chris Carcich by 8
seconds. Art Gunter ran a blistering 16:32. Congratulations to everyone who took part in
both the run and walk events.


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!
Stay Safe & God Bless America
