18th ANNUAL Keith McHeffey 3 MILE FUN RUN Saturday, March 16, 2019 11 a.m. • SEA BRIGHT, NEW JERSEY

Friends of the KDM Foundation, The KDM Foundation (KDM) is eagerly preparing for our 18th Annual Fun Run in SEA BRIGHT, NJ, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 16, 2019 Your participation and generosity has enabled KDM to complete a wide array of projects throughout our area. Please be mindful of a few important changes, which aim to improve the race experience for everyone. Similar to other large charitable races, pre-registration will be required for all participants who wish to receive a racing number and official running time. You may pre-register online by visiting kdmfoundation.com. For those who do not pre-register, you will still be able to participate on the day of the race and to receive this year’s KDM race shirt while supplies last. The registration price is $35. We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 KDM Foundation Fun Run!

KDM FOUNDATION The Keith McHeffey Foundation was created to keep the spirit of Keith McHeffey and countless other local victims of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 alive through a variety of charitable functions. To this end, the Foundation has created a permanent memorial to area victims by renovating Memorial Field at Piping Rock Park in Rumson, NJ, helping to complete the children's playground at Fair Haven Fields, donating a digital scoreboard to Sickles School in Fair Haven and most recently providing Sea Bright Recreation $10,000 to complete the beach playground area. The Foundation also awards annual scholarships in his name to students at Rumson Fair Haven Regional High School and has assisted many of the youth sports programs including Fair Haven, Rumson and Sea Bright. TEAMS WILL BE SCORED BY THE TOTAL FINISH TIME OF THE TOP FIVE FINISHERS IN EACH GROUP. A MINIMUM OF FIVE PARTICIPANTS IS REQUIRED TO BE CONSIDERED FOR TEAM SCORING AND TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR TEAM TROPHY. DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS AND TIME CONSTRAINTS, PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REGISTER ONLINE. THE RACE BEGINS AT 11 A.M. SHARP.
