Jaycees Make Great Donation

At ceremonies held recently at the Colross Mansion of the Princeton Day School, the Greater Princeton Jaycees donated funds raised by the 1983 Great Road Race to four local charities — the Princeton Day School Scholarship Fund, the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, the Princeton YMCA and the Princeton Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The Great Road Race raised $1,650 in this annual spring event, which serves as the kickoff for the Princeton area running season. The Great Road Race is the first of two annual running events organized by the Greater Princeton Jaycees, the second being the Princeton Half Marathon, scheduled for September.

Anne Knudsen-Fitzpatrick, president and director of the Princeton Nautilus and Fitness Center, and Elaine Crocker, assistant vice-president of the Commodities Corporation, were co-sponsors of the race and were on hand to assist Jaycess Community Development Vice President Sue White in presiding over the presentations.
