Waldwick April 8, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 5 Waldwick Run/Walk secures more than 40 sponsors The Waldwick community’s support for the chamber of commerce’s Second Annual 5K Run/Walk has been “astonishing,” according to its organizers. To date, more than 40 local businesses have contributed funds/and or products or services to the event, scheduled for Sunday, April 26 (rain or shine) beginning at 9 a.m.; 9:30 a.m. for the 1 mile Walk. Activities will run until 12 noon. “It just goes to prove how our town pulls together when they’re called on. It’s overwhelming just how many sponsorships we’ve received. This event is going to be incredible, and we look forward to continuing to make it grow year after year!” commented chamber President Christine Figliuolo. Her sentiment was echoed by Kim Post, the chamber’s executive secretary, who has been coordinating the Run since she assumed her position in January. “We are astonished at how many businesses were so enthusiastic to support their town and this race, This is only our 2nd annual 5K run event, and we have already gone from seven sponsors the first year to 40 sponsors this year. The businesses that are part of the chamber of commerce are strong and believe in our organization. They realize the importance of power in numbers - that’s why we’re growing even stronger in this tough economic environment,” Post said.
