The Veterans Office at Sussex County Community College and the American Legion Post 86 will host a Charity 5K Run/Walk for veteran recognition. 

Charity Fun 5K Run/Walk
Saturday, April 13   |  10 am-12 pm
Sussex County Community College campus
One College Hill Road, Newton, NJ 07860

The event's mission is to bring attention and support to the veterans of Sussex County. Lt. Charles A. Meyer, American Legion Post 86, and Sussex County Community College believe veterans transitioning back to civilian life appreciate the support of a welcoming community. Participants can show their support by attending the event. The entrance fee will go towards providing educational resources and economic support for the veterans.

The race consists of both a 5k race and a fun walk. The course, 3.1 miles, is around the Sussex County Community College campus parameter, with the charity walk, 2.1 miles, along the same course. As with all of Sussex County, the campus is composed of rolling hills offering scenic views of the greater Newton, NJ, making it a great place for this event.

Community Members: $30  Veterans and SCCC students: $20. To sign up please use the link below.
