The 12th annual Yavneh Academy Benjamin Schwartz Memorial 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk is set for Sunday, November 13, at the Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus. The run, in memory of the brother of Yavneh parent Mendy Schwartz, offers an opportunity for the community to join the Yavneh Academy family in support of the school. Last year, it drew more than 800 participants and raised more than $50,000 for Yavneh scholarships.
Participants of the 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Run/are offered a pre-race workout and buffet breakfast. At the end, medals are presented to the top runners in various age groups.
