Justin Cruz Memorial Run was a great success!
Sunday, November 3, 2013 , a nippy cold morning, bought out runners and walkers alike to benefit the Justin Cruz Scholarship Foundation at the Wall Soccer Fields for a 5k run and/or a 2 mile walk.
107 runners signed up for the race with 85 finishing through the course. We had runners from 7 years old to 77 years old.
Our overall winners, male and female:
- 19:09 Alex Smith, 15, Wall Township
- 20:51 Victoria Cantelmo, 17, Monmouth Beach
In 2nd place was:
- James Coornber, 28, Lake Como
- Katie Buchbinder, 19, Scotch Plains
- Alex Karu, 26, Wall Township
- Jane Mallach, 11,Rumson
This event netted $6,000.00 for the Justin Cruz Scholarship Foundation which offers scholarships to soccer players residing in Wall Township and are graduating High School preparing for their collegiate experiences.
The Wall High School art classes from Mrs. Mychelle Kendrick join in a competition to design the tee-shirt, which was won by Michele Ianelli, and the pictures were taken by stand-out Freshman photographer, Jane Stout, who has done a fine job.
