Run with Veronica! 5k & One-Mile Fun Run June 16th


On Saturday, June 16th, we will all Run with Veronica, to defeat Hodgkin Lymphoma and support the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

In collaboration with the New Jersey State Police, Trinity Hall, and the Spring Lake Police Department, we have scheduled a 5K and One-Mile Fun Run for all of our students, family members, parishioners, and friends to come together to run with and support Veronica and all of our loved ones that may be currently battling cancer.
