2019 Dumont 5K is hosted by the Dumont Community Group. This year the race is presented by Grant Street Cafe in Dumont, NJ. (http://grantstreetcafe.com) This years race we will be supporting Katie Caspare, a Dumont resident, who on November 18th, 2018 collapsed leaving work (Grant Street Cafe), a good Samaritan called the police and she was taken to the hospital. Katie underwent surgery to alleviate the pressure on her brain. As of yet, the cause of the brain bleed is unknown. Katie has not regained consciousness since she collapsed. Katie has had multiple procedures and tests since her initial surgery and has a long road to travel. Her treatment will be extensive and costly. She will need more surgeries, tests, rehabilitation and treatments before she is out of the woods. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Katie to help with these costs. There is also a donation’s page set up for Katie here. All donations submitted will go to Katie. Please note that a donation to this 5K for Katie is not admission to the race.
The races starting point is located at Dumont High School, Dumont, NJ. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Dumont families in need and in distress.
