NEW MILFORD, N.J. — The New Milford Education Foundation has added a certified 5K to its third annual fundraising race at Gibbs Elementary School next month.All proceeds from the Oct. 24 5K/10K Race and Kids Run will go toward programs sponsored by the NMEF — including scholarships, teacher grants, capital improvements and more.

"It's a great day for the community to come out as a whole," Executive Director Jim Prendergast said. "This is one of the few events that unites all four schools within the district at one time."

More than $6,000 was raised last year for New Milford High School, David E. Owens Middle School, the Berkley Elementary School and Gibbs.

This year's event begins at 8 a.m.with a pizza party sponsored by Angelina's Pizzeria

"We're just trying to encourage people to come out and have a great day with us," Prendergast said.
