Everybody Loves Elwood Day October 18
Students and others in our community have come out year after year to show support and raise funds for former Ridgewood High School teacher Jack Elwood. This year the annual 5K run/walk in honor of Mr. Elwood will take place Sunday 10/18. This event is both a fundraiser and a way to bring attention to ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Registration for the 5K is at 8:00 AM and is $20 (includes t-shirt). The run/walk steps off at 9:00 AM at the RHS Stadium/Track.
I served on the Ridgewood Board of Education 2008-2011, and I continue to blog on education issues in Ridgewood, the state of New Jersey and the nation. I've worked in direct marketing creative for 20+ years, creating and writing catalogs, websites, corporate marketing, emails, white papers, and more. I live in Ridgewood, NJ (since 1997), married with two children (one in college and one at RHS).
