CAMDEN, N.J. — Camden’s Charter School Network (CCSN) is bringing their “We Are Charter” 5K Race, 1M Family Fun Walk, and Health Fair back in-person on  Saturday, April 30, 2022.

In addition to the 5K and 1M walk, this annual event focuses on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle through the provision of a free health fair. It also raises funds for the “We Are Charter” scholarship program with scholarships awarded to seniors graduating from Camden Academy Charter High School.

Registration is open and everyone is invited to attend! Prices are as follows, Run – $25, Walk – $10, Student (run or walk) – $5, Health Fair – Free. You can register at 5K awards will be given out based on time for overall, gender and age groups.

Individuals and families will enjoy running or strolling along the beautiful Delaware River waterfront following the planned route. The “Catch the Wellness Wave” Health Fair offers a carnival type atmosphere, with a bounce house, photo booth, giveaways, and more. Local nonprofit partners and vendors will be in attendance providing information and instruction pertaining to living a healthy lifestyle.

The “We Are Charter” 5K started in 2015 as an annual fundraiser to support scholarships for graduating seniors. In 2020 the race was changed to a virtual event because of the pandemic and the 2021 race was cancelled due to the uncertainty of COVID.
