The Seventh Annual Justin Cruz Memorial Run will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at the all Municipal Complex located at 2700 Allaire Road in Wall, NJ.
The race features a 5K along with a 2 mile walk and starts at 9:30 AM. It’s an interesting course around the complex’s jogging path which includes some gentle hills.
Proceeds from the race are to benefit the Justin Cruz Scholarship Fund.
The Justin Cruz Scholarship is a memorial scholarship in honor of Justin Cruz who loved soccer, was an exemplary athlete and a true “team player”. He tragically died on the way home from a Shore conference Quarter-final and just that day was recruited to 2 colleges. In his honor and to keep his “love of the game” going, this scholarship was founded. It is offered to 1 male and 1 female, who plan on continuing to pursue their “love of soccer.
Should be a great day to get out and run as it’s the same day as the NYC Marathon. So if you are not up to doing a marathon yet – check out this worthwhile event.
