Run with Rotary & Earth Day Fair May 5th

Posted on March 18, 2019

@ SKILLMAN PARK with Run with Rotary

Save the date for RUN WITH ROTARY 5k Run and 1-mile Ramble event on May 5 in Skillman Park (between Burnt Hill Road and Route 601). Get those sneakers on and get ready for a fun day.  In past years, the race has attracted 900 runners and walkers and is a sanctioned Grand Prix event by the USA Track and Field organization. Return for a great family tradition or start a new one of your own. Run as an individual or with the whole family.

Run With Rotary is the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary Club’s main fundraising event. All proceeds benefit local and international charities. One of this year’s goals is to complete the purchase of a new mobile soup kitchen and disaster unit for Samaritan Homeless Interim Program.

The morning Run With Rotary event will include music, kid-care for ages 4-8, Penn Medicine Princeton Health activities, MHS Drum Corps, Dance Factory performance, massage tables, Zumba class, 50/50 Raffle, kid’s activities, drone demos, and more.  For details and online registration visit www.RunWithRotary.org

Stay and enjoy the EARTH DAY FAIR, sponsored by the Montgomery Environmental Commission. Join us for many fun family activities while learning more about protecting our community and environment, while having fun!

There will be entertainment (including a Battle of the Bands), food trucks, environmental information booths, kids activities, and lots more to explore.  Of course, also included, will be our annual shredding and recycling and donation drop-off event.  For a full list of recyclables, visit: http://EDF.montgomery.nj.us/.
