Brookdale Students to Host 3K for Hurricane Relief

Community members of all ages are invited to participate in a 3K walk for Caribbean hurricane relief on Thursday, Nov. 30 beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Brookdale Community College’s Lincroft campus.

All proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity’s ongoing efforts to restore housing in Caribbean islands impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

The 3,000-meter walk, which begins at the Student Life Center and winds across Brookdale’s 220-acre campus, is hosted by students in Brookdale’s The Innovation Network (TIN).

TIN, which began as a small pilot program in 2014, has grown into a college-wide initiative that allows students to earn college credit for organizing and participating in service-learning projects.

Recent TIN projects include a benefit auction and student art show in support of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Freehold last spring and an ongoing, campus-wide “greening” initiative in Lincroft.

Entry for the 3K is $5 per person. Additional donations and contributions by non-walkers are welcome. Water and snacks will be provided. For more information call Debbie Mura at 732-278-2234 or email dmura@brookdalecc.edu.
