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.
More than a record 4,000 runners and walkers participated in this year's Cooper Norcross Run the Bridge, presented by AmeriHealth New Jersey. The 10K race – the largest in the tri-state area – benefits the Larc School, which serves individuals with moderate to severe disabilities throughout South Jersey. All proceeds from today’s race, estimated to be a record $400,000, go directly to the Larc School.
