The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce on behalf of Nanuet and Beyond is hosting an official 5K race/walk on Sunday, May 7, 2023, in Nanuet. The race is a fundraiser to support Nanuet and Beyond’s scholarship/grant program and other related activities. Nanuet and Beyond is a 501c3 non-profit organization created to support and provide educational opportunities for our youth that enhance existing program experiences both within and outside the classroom. Our goal is to "enrich the educational experience for all." We offer an annual grant/scholarship and work with local schools to create student/community events. Our annual student art exhibition, currently in coordination with the Nanuet School District art department and Palisades Center, where student art is displayed for two weeks, followed by a public reception is an example of reaching out within and outside the classroom.
Registration fees and donations from this race support our efforts and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please visit our website, www.nanuetandbeyond.org to learn more about other fundraisers and activities.
