Our mission is to enhance the educational opportunities in the Upper Freehold Regional School District through the identification and development of community partnerships and private resources. These collaborations will inspire academic excellence and a positive learning environment that would be otherwise unavailable due to budget constraints.


4th Annual 5K Run/Walk and Children's Fun Run

The Upper Freehold Regional Education Foundation (UFREF) is pleased to host its 4th Annual Community Twilight Challenge 5K run/walk and One-Mile Children’s Fun Run on Saturday June 9, 2012 in Upper Freehold, New Jersey. Last year’s event had approximately 120 participants and spectators. Click here for a Sponsor Package and Race Flyer, which we hope you will consider.

In addition to runners and sponsors, we are also seeking volunteers to donate their time and contributions of bottled water, bananas and other race day items. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to ufref@yahoo.com.

We hope to exceed last year's turnout where we had over 120 runners and raised close to $3,500. This is a fun-filled community event, where the focus is on physical fitness and helps support the children of the Upper Freehold Regional School District. Events like this, and our most recent Sno-Ball Tournament in February, allow the UFREF to fund programs, projects, activities, and equipment that enhance the educational experience of our children, via a formalized grants program.

Since 2007, the Upper Freehold Regional Education Foundation has been able to award approximately $150,000 relating to grant requests submitted by the faculty and staff of the UFRSD including targeted donations received in support of the Robotics Club and "Bridging the Gap" Initiative, thanks to the tremendous support and generosity of our sponsors, families, friends and neighbors.

UFREF is a nonprofit coalition of the private, business, and civic sectors, dedicated to promoting quality education by establishing, supporting and enhancing programs of the UFR School District. One of the Foundation’s goals is to raise funds that are used as a source of grants to students, teachers, and administrators to enhance educational opportunities in the UFR school district.

Race registration will begin at 4:00 pm at Allentown High School with the One-Mile Children’s Fun Run starting at 5:00 pm and 5K Run/Walk starting at 5:30 pm. The NJ State Police will handle traffic detours along the 5K route and control traffic flow. Route 539 will be temporarily closed from High Street to Walnford Road between 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm. The course will begin in the back parking lot of Allentown High School, go through the Elementary School parent parking lot, turn right (heading south) onto Route 539, and continue until Walnford Road. The race will turn around at that point and return to the High School the same way. The One-Mile Fun Run will take place on school grounds.

Thank you in advance for your time and support!
