8th Annual Memorial
5k Run and One-Mile Walk

The 8th Annual 5k Run and One Mile Walk, inspired by the memory of Hasbrouck Heights teachers John Rau, Cheryl Terlemezian, and Robert Fitzgerald, was held on May 13th with 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 One Mile Family Walk.

More than 150 people participated in what organizers said "was the best year ever."

The top men’s finisher was Heights resident Brian Morrow (former track coach & current HHFD volunteer firefighter) at 17:02.

The top women’s finisher was Carly Steinmetz of Hasbrouck Heights at 24:22.

The event helps raise funds for high school seniors continuing their education after graduation. Over $3,000 was raised this year.

Amenities included: "T" shirt, timing system, awards, post-race refreshments, etc.

Volunteers helped direct traffic for the runners on the streets, handed out water, bananas and oranges, and registered participants for the run.

Costa Memorial Home, Shop-Rite, New Balance, Oasis Water, Kuiken Brothers Lumber Co. (Fair Lawn), plus many other local businesses, helped sponsor the event.

The HHFD Ambulance Squad, HH Police and HH DPW 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.
