Y's First Annual Give Thanks, Give Back 5K to benefit Strong Kids Campaign

Hello fellow runners and walkers! Marcia has organized with her local YMCA here in South Amboy, a 5K fund raiser and would love to have you attend. The event is "Give Thanks. Give Back. 5K Run/Walk". The holidays are approaching and this is a great way to assuage that proverbial holiday stress while doing something good. If you don't run, there is a 1 mile walk and best of all there will be a POST RUN PARTY at the Blue Moon in South Amboy where we will relax and have a nice lunch. They will be grilling on their patio!

You may register online at jerseyrunner.com or ymcaofmewsa.org/events. Hope to see you there! Thank you, Trish, for providing your meetup site to post this event!

Yours truly......Marcia Hodulik

    Hi please look for Marcia as I will not be able to attend tomorrow. My father had a stroke and will be with him this weekend. Don't forget lunch at the Blue Moon afterwards

    Alas, I won't be able to make it as I'll be participating at another walk over the Brooklyn Bridge on that same day helping the St. Jude Research Hospital for Children! Good luck to all!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
