The 5th annual Step Up for Colleen 5K is set for Sunday, May 6, 2018. The friends and family of Colleen Ritzer created this walk/run as a way to celebrate Colleen’s life and her commitment to helping and inspiring others. Proceeds from the event support the Step Up for Colleen Fund at the Essex County Community Foundation, which benefits the Colleen E. Ritzer Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Fund provides college scholarships to high school graduates who pursue education as a college major and reflect Colleen's values. Registration will open in early 2018, and for now we hope you will save the date!
