Race aims to remember Holocaust victims

The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education is hosting its inaugural “Run for The Six.” The community run/walk is on Sunday, June 10, at 9:30 a.m., at the Rockland Community College track and field, 145 College Road in Suffern. Registration begins at 9.

Together, the group will walk six laps on the RCC track. On each lap we will remember one million of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. A children’s Spartan run, for 5- to 10-year-olds, at 10:30, is on the field in the middle of the track. Participants will be greeted by the local Holocaust survivor community as they cross the finish line.

Festivities include inflatables, entertainment, music, refreshments, and more.

The museum’s mission is to educate the community to never forget the Holocaust. With this in mind, they invite all those who are dedicated to undoing hatred and prejudice to be a part of the walk/run to remember. Event proceeds will benefit meaningful social and educational programs for Holocaust survivors and school-aged children.
