FUNDRAISE

For the past 20 years, we have heard from you about how much fun our summer race is and that it is even MORE fun because you are running in support of your community. This year, we’re on a serious mission to build safe affordable housing for military veterans and their families. Our returning heroes deserve more than we can give them, which is why we have enhanced this year’s race to add a fundraising component – we believe no veteran that’s served our country should be without a home. Did you know that there are 3,000 homeless veterans, on any given night, living on the streets in New Jersey? This is not okay! But, YOU can help change this when you Run with a Mission. If you register as an individual or a team fundraiser, any money you raise will benefit A Home for Heroes, building safe affordable housing for homeless and disabled veterans and their families. We hope that you will join us as a volunteer fundraiser and raise money for A Home for Heroes, while you train for and participate in the PSEG Teterboro Airport 5K! We have made it so easy with your own personalized fundraising website. And, starting in May we will send you weekly chances to win fun prizes just by fundraising! Individual Fundraisers: By signing up as an individual fundraiser and committing to raise $125*
