Lincroft, NJ – The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College invites runners and walkers of all ages and athletic abilities to participate in the Inaugural 5K Challenge for Chhange Run/Walk at the Lincroft main campus of Brookdale Community College. The event will take place on Sunday, August 26 with race registration beginning at 7:00 a.m. The race begins at 8:30 a.m. Awards will be presented at 9:45 a.m.
Award categories include the overall top three male and female runners and also medals for the top three male-female runners in each age group. Great goodie bags, T shirts, live music, refreshments and random drawings will add to the festivities.
The race will end outside Chhange’s new facility adjacent to Brookdale’s main Bankier Library. The location will house a dedicated exhibit, research center, library, archives and a “smart classroom” including a video conferencing center.
Local Holocaust survivors will be present at the awards and dedication ceremonies where they will symbolically pass their history into the future.
Each year, statewide, Chhange educates over 15,000 students, teachers and community members. Proceeds from the race will enable Chhange to provide the proactive tools to continue combating hate, bullying and all forms of prejudice.
