WOODLAND PARK, N.J. – Aug. 9, 2012 – On Sept. 8, runners and walkers can step up to make a difference at “The 4 Miler at Garret Mountain” race event. Sponsored by the Sax Macy Fromm (SMF) Foundation, this first annual fundraiser will benefit St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Department, which provides child life services to children who suffer from cancer and serious blood disorders, such as sickle cell anemia.
The race event will feature a 4-mile run on a USA Track and Field (USATF) certified race course, as well as a 1.5-mile trail walk and kids’ dashes. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m. on race day, followed by the 4-mile run at 9 a.m., trail walk at 9:10 a.m., and kids’ events at 10:15 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for overall male and female winners, as well as to winners in the 4 Miler age groups.
Pre-registration for participants through Sept. 3 is $22 ($20 for USATF members). After Sept. 3 and on race day, registration is $25. To register for the event, which will be held rain or shine, visit www.raceforum.com/garret. Event day highlights will include live DJ entertainment, prizes, kids’ activities, and food and beverages. Tech t-shirts will be given to participants while supplies last.
