On the first Sunday of each November, Campbell’s Field lights up in the wee hours of the morning in preparation for the nation’s largest 10K race called Run The Bridge. Though the race is run over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, most of the pre and post-run activities take place at Campbell’s Field. Cooper University Hospital is a naming sponsor of the race which benefits the Larc School for children with disabilities.
Each year, Cooper employees embrace the race and volunteer their time to help make sure it runs effortlessly. They bring their husbands, wives and children and proudly wear their red Cooper t-shirts to hand out water and walker certificates, help direct racers, and cheer on the runners. They are the true spirit and champions of the Run The Bridge race.
