Fun Run

The annual Fun Run for Special Olympics New Jersey, a 34-year tradition on the Boardwalk continued on Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. To date, PIANJ and NJYIP have raised some $4 million for SONJ. Participants ran, jogged and walked, and celebrated the fundraising and race accomplishments with Special Olympics athletes and officials during the celebratory breakfast that followed. Special Olympics athletes who have participated in the games for as long as 50 years addressed the breakfast crowd, bringing their audience to tears.

Nearly 110 runners took part in the five-kilometer race. Franklin Mutual Insurance Co.’s Kyle Price finished first for the men with a time of 16:45; Alysse Merullo, a member of the Maiden Re team, finished first for the women with a time of 25:24.

In terms of fundraising, FMI, a major-event sponsor for many years, was the company that raised the most money, contributing more than $85,000 to the Fun Run total. During the annual conference, FMI also received the Community Service award from PIANJ for its commitment to the Fun Run and other events. Other top fundraisers included: Jimcor Agencies, top agency; and Jordana Nester of Maiden Re as top individual. In all, the Fun Run raised $112,000 this year for the cause.
