RACE PROCEEDS

Race proceeds will benefit Project Graduation for Hillsborough High School Class of 2023 and Hillsborough’s Rock Steady Boxing

It is our hope that graduates of Hillsborough's Class of 2023 will enjoy a high-spirited, all-night celebration and party immediately following the commencement exercises in June. This popular local effort is part of a nationally recognized program whose goal is to provide a drug and alcohol free celebration of life while giving graduates a positive sendoff. According to the Prosper Press in a publication dated February 21, 2016: The percentage of teen automobile fatalities involving alcohol jumps from 33 percent to 40 percent on the night of graduation. One-third of those younger than 21 who die in car accidents lose their lives during graduation season. In a 2010 poll, 79 percent of seniors admitted teens were more likely to drink and drive on graduation night. 

Rock Steady Boxing is a unique program in Hillsborough organized by Barbara Kelly to improve symptoms and quality of life in people diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. This cause is important to us as the Resolution Run Founder, Gary Verhoorn, says this program has helped him tremendously following his own diagnosis. Our goal is to fund educational programs and support a scholarship program for those in our community who may not be able to participate as a result of limited funds.

Lastly, as part of our commitment to replenish the Hillsborough Food Bank after the holiday season, participants will have the option of adding on a $5 donation at check out in place of the canned goods they would have brought on race day.
