Our 5k made the news! Please check out the YouTube video as well as the article below 

Last year we had a visit from Chris Wragge from CBS News. Chris Wragge was  looking for extraordinary people doing extraordinary things. Mr. Morsella (the coordinator of the Relay for Life Event that is held in Elizabeth NJ), whose son Davide suffers from a rare debilitating illness, which took years to diagnose. The fact that Mr. Morsella runs our Relay for Life Event with the National Honor Society every year was of great interest to CBS.


If you cannot attend but would still like to donate, we will gratefully receive it. Please visit our "Donate" page to make your donation.
