PRINCETON, NJ (January 11, 2017) – To ring in the most romanticized time of the year, a familiar voice will help put everyone in the spirit.
Jeremy Donovan, the sports director of FOX40 WICZ, will emcee Community Options’ Cupid’s Chase 5K, an annual fundraiser by the nonprofit organization to raise money to provide housing and employment support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Donovan, who has spent over five years with WICZ, is a local product having graduated from Seton Catholic Central High School prior to attending college at SUNY Oswego. At SUNY Oswego, Donovan was the sports director at WTOP, the student-run television station and spent his summers working for minor league baseball’s Binghamton Mets.
This year’s Binghamton Cupid’s Chase 5K will take place in the Downtown Binghamton area. The race will begin at the corner of Court St. and Hawley St. by the Boscov’s Department Store. Registration, food, raffles and awards will be held at the nearby Holiday Inn.
The last three years, Community Options raised over $700,000 with nearly 5,000 runners in attendance across the country last year.
Participants will receive an “Available” or “Unavailable” shirt to wear for the race in hopes of sparking a love connection, as well as a finisher medal and a goody bag.
Registration fee from now through February 10 is $30. Registration on raceday, February 11, will be $40. For more information or to register, visit cupidschase.org.
