About This Activity

****Online Registration will Close on Sunday May 15th  at NOON*****  Onsite registration will be available on Race morning.

On Saturday May 20th 2107 Armed Forces Day,  the Home School Association of Saint Michael School in Cranford will be hosting a spring USATF CERTIFIED 5k and 1mile fun run to benefit both Operation Shoebox NJ and Saint Michael School. We invite you to join us in this community event by supporting the race with your donation.
Founded in 2005, Operation Shobox NJ is an all-volenteer grass roots organization dedicated to collecting donated supplies and shipping care packages to U.S. troops based in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Middle East countries. They are committed to sending care packages overseas as long as there is a need. Several times each year, volunteers gather to sort donated supplies and pack them in boxes that are shipped overseas. They rely on the compassion and patriotism to maintain their supply line and to assist with the shipping cost of sending the care packages to our brave men and women.   To date Operation Shoebox has shipped more that 73,000 packages to U.S. Military personnel over the last 12 years
Saint Michaels School exists to promote the spiritual, academic and personal formation of the whole child. The challenge of the Saint Michael Student is to live these teachings beyond our doors into the local and world communities. One way to do this is through volunteering and helping others. Saint Michael School will be donating a portion of the funds generated by this race to the Operation Shoebox NJ organization to help with the shipping costs of the care packages.
