On the run for a good cause

On the run for a good cause

There are many ways to get involved with causes that focus on non-profits in NJ. Working for one is one way.  But working for one and ‘running for one’ also works.  That is what Melissa Chalker did recently. Melissa, who usually writes this blog, has worked for the NJ Foundation for Aging for over five years.  Besides her normal routine, this year Melissa prepared to run a half marathon. She focused on Trenton’s  “Double Cross Half Marathon”. What a great way to see Trenton!  The run was also a fundraiser for selected charities and Melissa was able to earmark her running sponsorships to the NJ Foundation for Aging.

What a meaningful way to incorporate the passion of her work and the passion to run! We greatly appreciate her commitment, the sponsorship of her family, friend and colleagues.  We thought it would be great to share a few photos!
