Third Annual Rapids Run for Veterans 5k

On Saturday, November 5th 2016, JRHS NJROTC partnered with the JRHS Center for Leadership and International Relations to host the Third Annual Rapids Run for Veterans 5K. With participants ranging from Cadets to Teachers and other adults, the 5K raised funds for the Fisher House organization, which helps families of Veterans undergoing medical treatment away from home to have a place to stay. Each participant received a shirt and a special shirt was given to the top two finishers, military veterans, and a running club who came out to participate. The top finisher, James River Government Teacher Mr. Alexander Addison, also received a memorial plaque. We would like to thank that Cadets and Leadership students who volunteered and our Commanding Officer, c/LTCDR John Booker, for organizing this event. We hope to see many of the volunteers and runners back here next year as well.
