Last year’s event…
On September 29th, 350 runners participated in our inaugural Zombie 5K Run. Approximately $9,300 was raised to benefit educational programs at VHS, and help shape resourceful and committed future leaders of our community. The afternoon event included post-run prizes, food and a live band. The first place winner of the 5K was a member of the Voorhees High School track team.
“We are grateful for the support of our registrants and volunteers who helped make the event fun, safe and successful by supporting our students and our community”, said Foundation President Chris Sickels. The VHS Drama Department provided an amazing team of zombies lead by their own Principal Zombie, Ron Peterson.
The VHSEF would also like to thank its generous sponsors: Our lead sponsor – the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Centers of Clinton and Whitehouse Station, Sintan Technologies and Whitestone Associates. Refreshments were donated by Shop Rite of Clinton.
Save the Date! Next year’s 5K is scheduled for Sunday, September 28, 2014 at Spruce Run Recreation Area!
Zombies never say YOLO so you’d better run. If you think you have what it takes to survive, register for the Zombie 5K Run hosted by the Voorhees High School Education Foundation. “In the spirit of Halloween, the Zombie 5K Run will be an opportunity to prove what you’re made of while having fun and supporting our students and our community,” said Foundation President Chris Sickels.
As runners make their way through the lush grounds of Spruce Run Recreation Area, Zombies will be lurking throughout the course, hiding behind trees, bushes and rocks. Runners who outsmart the Zombies and make it to the finish line are survivors.
