The fire in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights on September 12, 2013 was devastating to the community and all the businesses that were first impacted by Hurricane Sandy and now by the “Fire”.
Tanner’s Run which starts and finishes in Seaside Park is determined to get their event off on Sunday, September 22, 2013 despite the damage to the boardwalk where a portion of the course was run.
According to Dana Edwards, the organizer and Tanner’s Dad, “This will be an opportunity to not only support the cause associated with Tanner’s Run but also show support to the local community that has been devastated. I hope everyone decides to come out and help a child and a community.”
Congressman Jon Runyan, former NFL Philadelphia Eagle great has been a supporter of the event and the cause and has attended Tanner's Run for the past 3 years and plans to be there again this year.
