5k Run for Reading! at Thompson Park

October 22, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Bridge of Books

To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we are hosting our first ever 5k Run for Reading! at Thompson Park in Lincroft, New Jersey on October 22, 2023.  We will be using all the funds raised to continue to put books in the hands of children across the state.

As a member of the Bridge of Books community, we hope to see you and some of your fellow educators/service providers participating in our continued efforts to support New Jersey’s children.

We know how difficult it can be for you to support the children you serve – in the classroom or community – throughout the year, so we are offering the school/organization with the greatest number of participants a $250 gift card to Barnes & Noble to assist your efforts!  To be guaranteed a race t-shirt, be sure to register before 10/4.

Gather your friends and co-workers – register today!  Please be sure to select “school” or “organization” when you register & send me a quick email at with your name & information! We will announce the winning group after the race along with the medal winners.

This will be a fun day where every step we take will support young minds across New Jersey!
