6th Annual Memorial
5k Run and One-Mile Walk

The 6th annual 5k Run and the One Mile Walk, inspired by-the memory of Hasbrouck Heights teachers John Rau, Cheryl Terlemezian, and Robert Fitzgerald, was held on April 24 with a registration beginning at 8 a.m. The Rau-Fitzgerald Memorial Run started at 9:30 a.m. on the Boulevard, followed by the 10:30 a.m. Terlemezian mile walk.

Volunteers helped direct traffic for the runners on the streets, hand out water, bananas and oranges, and register participants for run.   The New Balance, Costa Memorial Home and other local businesses helped sponsor the event.  The HHFD Ambulance Squad provided event support.

The event was sponsored by Hasbrouck Heights Education Association, and the Race Director was Barbara Christianson, Hasbrouck Heights High School’s Student Assistance Counselor.
