HANDS TO HEROES FOUNDATION

Serving Those Who Have Served

2018 5K POSTPONED

It is with very heavy hearts, we are making this announcement. With many successful fundraisers under our belts, and coming off the energy of last year's 5K, this is not what we had wanted for our second running event, but after many discussions and budget meetings, we have decided we are going to have to postpone the 2018 Craft Beer 5K until further notice.

Unfortunately we made a mistake in trying to run the event on Morris County property. The level of approvals and bureaucracy that were involved were daunting, and the expense of the event due to requirements of the County got out of hand. It ate away at the amount of money we would be able to donate to Folds of Honor which eventually put us into the negatives; something we have never done in all of our events. Being a grassroots Foundation run by 100% volunteers, where every dime beyond direct expenses is donated to our chosen charity, we have to be careful to make sure all event budgets are strictly followed. For this we truly apologize to each of you, and would like to let you know we are already looking for another private location (in the area!) to run this event in the spring, and hope you will re-sign up and stick with us through this! We are also planning on running smaller events in the area and would love to see you there!
 
We are giving all of our registered runners the option of a full refund (including your processing fee), or a partial refund with the remainder that is not refunded being directly donated to Folds of Honor Foundation's scholarship program for the children of veterans killed in action. If you are willing to donate $20 or more to Folds of Honor, we will provide you with a complimentary Hands to Heroes Foundation Pint Glass as a thank you!

In addition to this, as a sincere thank you for supporting us, we are offering all participants a T-shirt from last years race, free of charge. We will decide on a pickup location in Morris County, and will let you know via email which weekend we will be there for you to pickup your shirt. Sizes will be available on a first come first serve basis. If you decide to donate $20 or more to Folds of Honors scholarship fund, this location is where you will be able to pick up your glass, also. Furthermore, if for some reason we run out of shirts, you will be given a complimentary glass. 

Again, we thank you for your support and we hope you continue to support us and stick with us on our mission of supporting veterans and their families, from local heroes, to charities like Folds of Honor who assist veterans near and far. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! And we look forward to meeting each one of you and apologizing in person as well as giving you information on our charity and any upcoming events you may attend! 

Sincerely,
Hands to Heroes Foundation
