This year we are partnering with the Sandy Hook Foundation, the official nonprofit friends group to the National Park Service at Sandy Hook, NJ, a unit of Gateway National Recreation Area. Established in 1989, the Foundation has funded cultural, educational, environmental, and conservation programs and has helped restore and preserve historic structures of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse and Fort Hancock — both National Historic Landmarks. During registration, participants have the option to make a tax-deductible donation to The Sandy Hook Foundation through, to support the Foundation's work within the park.
The Foundation will also be present at Area E on race day.
