The Twin Boros Scholarship Foundation is starting a new Memorial Day weekend tradition – a 5k Fun Run ‘prelude’ to the annual Bound Brook Criterium bike races (part of the Tour of Somerville cycling series) on the streets of Bound Brook. The race begins at 11:15am, Sunday, May 26th, on West Maple Avenue.
For Central Jersey Tri Club members we have secured a $5 Discount (normally $25) on the race entry. Click here to access our members only discount code and for race registration information.
Background: The Twin Boros Scholarship Foundation was started by a then 89 year old gentleman by the name of Hugo Kladiviko – a Bound Brook native. His vision was simple: if everyone in the Boroughs of Bound Brook and South Bound Brook could donate one penny per day, there would be enough money to award scholarships each year to deserving local youth. The “penny a day” concept resonated with the merchants, townspeople and educators in the community. Soon there would be piggy banks located in many of the downtown stores and the idea caught on. When Hugo died in 1989, he left the first of several significant monetary bequests to the foundation.
