On June 6, 2009, St. George & St. Shenouda Coptic Orthodox Church of Jersey City, NJ hosted it’s Second Annual “Exercise Your Spirit” 5K Run. The race was held on a beautiful sunny day at Nomahegan Park in Cranford, NJ.
In addition to the many returning participants from last year, runners from all over the tri-state area joined us this year to support their sister church. We hosted som
Fastest Male Runner – Mena Francis, finishing in 22:30
Fastest Female Runner – Maryann Sous
Also this year, we witnessed the Lord’s hand working as the money raised nearly doubled over night. The 5K Run raised $44,759.05! Five times the income of last year’s event! With this in mind, we especially recognize and thank the great efforts of the top three fundraisers:
1. Nasheds (Mark Thomas Daniel) – $6,058.00
2. Safwat Shaker – $4,285.00
3. Ralph Toss – $4,265.00
Many thanks to all those who planned, worked, and labored for this event to be such a GREAT success! A special thanks to our priests for their support and mentorship.
