The 132 runners and walkers who signed up for Project Graduation’s first 5K Run, which was held on Sunday, April 10th, gathered at Roselle Park High School’s football field and took their marks.

With water stops along the way, the runners finished on West Colfax Avenue. Brian Palang finished first with a time of 24:02 minutes.
