Racing for a Cure at the Carnegie Center 5K & Fun Run
More than 400 runners, walkers and volunteers gathered on Saturday, October 2 in West Windsor, NJ, for the 5th annual Carnegie Center 5K and Fun Run to raise funds for The Parkinson Alliance. The event raised a magnificent $35,000 for Parkinson's research!
It was an early start as young runners set off in the one mile Fun Run, while parents and adults tackled the 5K. All child winners received their own runner's trophy while the top men's winner, Daniel Feder, with a time of 16:28, and the top women's winner, Katie Kellner, with a time of 21:26 walked away with a trophy and special prizes.

Prior to the 5K, the Honorable Rush Holt (D-12th) addressed the audience and talk about the progress and the importance of Parkinson's research. After the race, enthusiastic volunteers served a spread of drinks, snacks, sandwiches, and pizza for the runners to enjoy. Commercial real estate broker and Race Director Jerry Fennelly, his wife Nancy, NAI Fennelly and generous corporate sponsors like Interpool, Tyco, Yardville National Bank, Boston Properties, GE Healthcare, and Washington Group International helped to make this event another great success. "This gets us one step closer to the cure," says Carol Walton, Executive Director of The Parkinson Alliance.
