Rau-Fitzgerald 5K/Terlemezian
1 Mile Run and Family Walk 2007

The rain from one of the worst Nor’easters to hit our area didn’t dampen the spirits of the runners as they poised at the starting line.

The 9th 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 April 15th 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.

The top men’s finisher was Wood-Ridge resident Rudi Trivigno at 18:14. The top women’s finisher was Harriet Puja of Bayonne at 22:57.

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 the Hasbrouck Heights Education Association, and the Race Director was Barbara Christianson, Hasbrouck Heights High School Student Assistance Counselor. ###
