Thanking All Those Who Supported Annual Princeton 5K Fundraiser

To the Editor:
The Princeton High School Cross Country-Track and Field (PHSCCTF) Booster Club would like to thank many in the community for supporting the Princeton 5K that was held on Saturday, March 18. The Princeton 5K is the largest annual fundraiser for the PHSCCTF Booster Club, a 501(c)(3). All donations directly support the Princeton High School boys’ and girls’ cross-country and track and field teams.

First we would like to thank our race manager, Hilary Biggs, who brought a wealth of expertise to our event. We also thank the Princeton Public Schools district and its facilities staff for providing us use of the Princeton Middle School, and the Princeton Police Department for keeping our participants safe on the course. We also appreciate the many people who volunteered their time to help put on this event — before, during, and after race day.

Next up, we thank our incredible sponsors. Princeton Tree Care led the way as a gold sponsor for the second year in a row. Fleet Feet Princeton Running Company returned as a silver sponsor, donated awards for top finishers, and held our packet pick-up. JaZams also sponsored at the silver level and donated awards for some amazing 14 and under runners completing a 5K. Other silver-level sponsors were Calloway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty, Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy, Queenston Realty, and Princeton Orthopaedics Associates. Please check out all our sponsors at and think of them when purchasing goods and services.

Lastly, we thank everyone who came out to run, walk, and cheer. We had a record turnout with over 450 people crossing the finish line of the 5K, and another 50 young athletes in the 300 meter kids dash. We hope to see you all out supporting the PHS track team this spring, the cross-country team in the fall, and in the 5K next year on March 16, 2024.
