5K Run/Walk to be held Saturday, 9/22


A 5K Run/Walk will be held at the Hatboro-Horsham High School on Saturday, Sept. 22, in remembrance of Edward Coombs and Robert Nagel, who died in a car accident on Aug. 6, 2011.

The 5K run, in its second year, is sponsored by the ETC Foundation. The foundation was established to give  outstanding scholar/athletes financial assistance to pursue higher education goals.

A second aim of the foundation is to work with high school students on responsible decision making through seminars, forums and videos.

Last year the race drew over 800 participants and raised $18,000. The high school is located on Babylon and Horsham Roads in Horsham, Montgomery County.

Participants may register the day of the event or at the ETC Foundation Website: http://etcfoundation34.org/2nd-annual-team-ecrn-5k-run

Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the race starts at 9  a.m. A pre-registration event will be at Maple Glen Pizza, 641 East Welsh Rd., Maple Glen, on Sept. 14  from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
