YWCA Princeton Volunteers

15th Annual ETS Firecracker 5K

The Annual ETS Firecracker 5K Run/Walk will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at the ETS Campus (660 Rosedale Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540). In addition to the 5K Run/Walk, there will be giveaways, music, a complimentary post-race buffet, and t-shirts for all pre-registered participants. Proceeds from this event support the YWCA Princeton's Bilingual Nursery School. This program, for at-risk preschoolers from across Mercer County, provides dual-language learning and enrichment activities that prepare students to enter kindergarten on par with their peers.

We are seeking numerous volunteers to make this race a success!

Volunteers will receive a special volunteer t-shirt, a complimentary post-race buffet, and an invaluable experience that goes towards furthering a worthy cause! All volunteers will receive credit for their hours as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email event coordinator Kate Liu at [email protected]

Many thanks!
