About the event

Timothy Dickerson (PaPa) was an amazing soul, with a unique and infectious personality and was called the glue of his family. All who came across him couldn't help but walk away with a smile on their face. His light continues to shine through his family and friends. His words led many others to deeper relationships with Jesus Christ, and his works of compassion and kindness are remembered by all who were touched by him.  

This race/walk is in his memory. All money raised will go to the Supportive Services for Veteran Families New Jersey (Catholic Family & Community Service).

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program, provides supportive services to Veterans with very low income who are literally homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Veteran families are provided a range of supportive services designed to promote housing stability.

The SSVF Program serves Veterans residing in the counties of Passaic, Bergen, Morris, Sussex, Union, Hudson and Essex. Services provided include case management, outreach, financial assistance, employment opportunities, legal aid assistance, and advocacy to support the Veteran household. SSVF dollars are used to pay short-term rent and utilities, rental arrears, utility arrears, moving expenses, child care expenses, apartment application fees, client transportation costs, broker’s fees and other costs that directly support the housing stability of low-income Veterans per eligibility requirements.

We are also launching a t-shirt fundraiser in conjunction with the race fundraiser.  This shirt would be great to wear during your race.  The shirts are $20 and  the proceeds are set to be mailed in a check to SSVF directly in memory of Timothy Dickerson.
