To the Editor:

The 2nd Annual 5K Run for Chris on 6-22-13 was a hugh success this year. Thank you to all who made this possible. The Chris Belfoure Memorial Fund at the Community Foundation at Middlesex County is a non-profit that integrates multicultural and foreign language programs into the schools of Lower Valley of Middlesex County.

Because of the kindness of The Town of Essex, Essex Park and Recreation, The Essex Police, The Resident State Trooper, and all of the people who donated and ran or walked this event we raised funds to support Chris’s dreams and visions. The high school students will benefit thru a grant from the fund to pay for transportation to visit Spain, France and Quebec this school year.

We would also like to thank all the sponsors especially “ From You Flowers “, our premier sponsor. Also instrumental in the success of the run were all the volunteers who donated their time. Special thanks to the race committee members: Cathy Bishop (race director), Julie Conner (for her logo design), George Chapin, Linda Talbott, Chloe Zanardi, and Sarah Delorso.

See you next year at the 3rd Annual 5K Run for Chris on Sat. June 21,2014. The run is now certified by the USATF.
