Raritan Valley Road Runners Presents


During the 2020 registration period for the Inaugural Tom O'Reilly Turkey Trot 5k, we proudly raised $2200 in Donations to the RVRR Scholarship Fund in memory of Tom. We did so well in 2020, we were able to donate an additional $1000.00 to the Scholarship Fund from the proceeds of the event, totaling a $3200.00. We ask that you continue your generosity in helping us reach our goal again this year. There is a "Donation" link on the registration page for donations and all who register will be prompted to donate during the registration process if they are interested. All donations are Tax-Deductible and any amount is welcomed and appreciated! You can also donate through our website by clicking HERE if you'd wish.

In 2021, we matched our 2020 registrations. As for donations, we raised about $1692.00 for the Scholarship Fund. As we did in 2020, we were able to donate an additional $1000.00 to the Scholarship Fund from the profits of the event, totaling $2692.00. This brings our 2 year total amount donated to the Scholarship Fund from the Tom O'Reilly Turkey Trot to $5892.00.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity!

We would like to welcome back and thank our Signature Sponsors, Bristol Myers Squibb and the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation, for their generous support!

Many who knew Tom knows he worked for Celgene, which is a subsidiary of Bristol Myers Squibb.

Their continued support in Memory of Tom speaks volumes for how much he was loved and appreciated!
