Project Graduation 2017 is dedicated to the graduating class of Hillsborough High School. Graduates enjoy a high-spirited, all-night celebration and party immediately following the commencement exercises in June. This popular local effort is part of a nationally recognized program whose goal is to provide a drug and alcohol free celebration of life while giving graduates a positive sendoff. Project Graduation 2017 is the 26th annual event and is supported by the Hillsborough Township Youth Commission, parent volunteers, the senior class, faculty and school administration and many other Township residents and officials. We are proud to be able to join in the support of Project Graduation.
Approximately half of the proceeds of the Race are contributed to Project Graduation and the remainder is divided among several local pet-friendly groups. Last year, the following non-profit groups were beneficiaries and these or similar groups will benefit from the 2017 Race:
Carol’s Cats is a non-profit organization dedicated to cat rescue and adoption programs. This organization has been rescuing and giving cats up for adoption since 1995. Carol’s Cats specializes in the rescue of feral and abandoned cats.
CAP Rescue of Hillsborough stands for Companion Animal Placement. CAP has been heavily involved in local and national rescue operations, including several trips to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to rescue stranded dogs.
Greyhound Friends of New Jersey is dedicated to the rescue, appreciation and care of the greyhound dog. They rescue as many as they can from possible death after racing and give them appropriate medical care. Greyhounds are placed in safe, loving homes.
