June 25, 2019 - The 16th Annual North Rockland Community 5K Run/Walk @ Bowline Point Park, Haverstraw, NY.
RCPHS members once again were among the volunteers for this year's Event. Last night the North Rockland Community 5K Run/Walk Committee had the opportunity to distribute checks to the three recipients of the 5K who have serious medical needs. This 5K was the 16th Annual and this event is a collaboration between the Towns of Haverstraw and Stony Point and the North Rockland Central School District. Since it started, the North Rockland 5K has raised nearly $350,000.
Thank you to all the committee members and special thanks to the 5K Coordinator, Detective Richard Spatta and to Coach Casarella who has helped out with this event since its inception. This fundraiser could not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors and all the participants at the 5K. Schultz Ford always steps up as our Titanium Sponsor and so many businesses donate each year to make this event a success. We have attached a photo from last night’s check presentation.
