Alpha Phi Omega and Phi Kappa Psi hosted the first annual TCNJ’s Fund our Friends 5K and Fun Run on Oct. 17. All proceeds were donated to local charities including the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Boys and Girls Club of Trenton, and Philabundance Food Bank.

The event, which was supposed to take place in Lot 2A, had to be moved inside the Brower Student Center due to rain. The race began at 8:30 a.m. with 62 runners and walkers braving the poor weather conditions, while bystanders watched.

Approximately $2,900 was raised. Nonperishable food donations were also collected.
