DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND IN CONSULTATION WITH THE TOWNSHIP OF TEANECK, THE 2020 5K RUN IS BEING POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
We sincerely thank all of our past and current sponsors and participants. We ask that you continue to support us in our mission to provide assistance to the Teaneck Public Schools.
As soon as circumstances permit, we will notify everyone of the new 2020 5K race date.
Be well and be safe.
The Teaneck Organization for Public Schools (TOPS) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational foundation whose sole mission is to support the children—and their families—of the Teaneck public schools.
Since 1991, TOPS has contributed close to $100,000 to Teaneck’s public schools to help supplement funding for technology, math and literacy programs while minimizing the financial burden on local taxpayers. Each year, TOPS volunteers work to raise money for the schools through individual donations and a wide variety of fundraisers, as well as soliciting grants and other funds from the local business and corporate community.
TOPS continually strives to build and strengthen relationships with community/civic organizations, small and large businesses as well as the vast pool of talented residents to expanded opportunities and experiences for the students of the Teaneck Public Schools.
Bring your friends, bring your family and make sure you don't miss out on a great, fun-filled event!
