THe USO 5K Run/Walk originally scheduled for October 7th has been re-scheduled to Saturday, May 5th of 2018.
The first ever such run from the USO in New Jersey will be hosted by the borough in advance of Memorial Day next year. This will allow for more time to promote the event and allow for greater participation not only from Roselle Park but the tri-state area and beyond.
The event was the endeavor of Third Ward Councilman William Fahoury, himself a United States Marine Corps veteran. Councilman Fahoury has often spoken of the real-life aftermath fellow veterans experience with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and other emotional issues. This project was a way to have the community show support for those who have served this country in the military.
Information will be presented on the event’s website as it becomes available (link).
