Foundation race part of the Triple Crown 5K Series

To the Editor:

I am so proud to be a longstanding member of the Voorheesville Community and School Foundation.  Over the past decade, the foundation has made a tremendous difference in Voorheesville and New Scotland.

Our last gift to the community supported the Classic Theater Guild’s performances at Indian Ladder Farms.  As soon as one event is over, another one begins and all foundation members pitch in to help. 

On Saturday, Aug. 17, at 9 a.m., the foundation is holding our 13th Annual Pre-Fall Classic 5K, 2-Mile Walk, and Kids’ Fun Run. Runners, walkers, and children are invited to participate.

This year, we are excited to be part of the Hilltown Triple Crown 5K Series, which includes the Altamont 5K, Fox Creek 5K, and our race. We are grateful to have our Phil Carducci as our race director again.  To sign up for the race, please register at:

The Foundation is also looking for race sponsors, raffle items, and volunteers. We ask that you consider making a donation of funds, merchandise, and your time to this worthy event. To make a donation or volunteer, please contact Lisa Brown at 765-7927 or .

There are many new and exciting events planned in the future.  Please support our efforts to enrich the community.
