Next Sunday, October 12, 2014, is the 4th Annual Matt Collura 5K Run/Walk and post-race BBQ. In 2011 friends and family of Matt Collura organized this race to raise Matt's spirits and to help support his recovery after he suffered traumatic brain injury in a snowboarding accident in March of that year. All of the funds raised help to provide extra hours of physical therapy and to purchase equipment that helps Matt work towards his ultimate goal of running again. The race begins at 10:30 am at Thompson Park, 1701 Perrineville Road in Jamesburg. Check in starts at 8:30 am. To register, click here.
