Hundreds of people gathered on May 14th of 2016, in James J Braddock North Hudson County Park, for the Nicholas J. Sacco Foundation’s Annual 5k Run. The run is a little over three miles long and takes the runners around various North Bergen hot spots such as Bergenline and Boulevard East. In addition to being a great opportunity for the community to get fit, the 5k run also benefits charity, with the proceeds being given back to the community through scholarships and much more. This is the 2nd year that the event has been hosted, with about 450 runners of all ages participating. The runners enjoyed the challenge of the course, the view on Boulevard East, and the opportunity to give back to the community. A plethora of medals were given out to the participants as well as entry to an after party in the Park with music, food, ice cream, and an assortment of drinks and beverages.
