There is a lot of information about the Individual Markers
and the Run which starts in Cape May.
NJ Run for the Fallen will be running through Belmar, on Ocean Ave, on Sunday, September 24th and will be stopping at two Hero Markers. There are no street closures and they are escorted by the State Police.
First Hero Marker is at Ocean Ave and North Blvd at approximately 9:07 am.
This marker is for Carlos Gonzales.
Carlos Sr. and his wife Anna come up from Florida
to be at their son’s Hero Marker every year.
Second Hero Marker is at Ocean Ave at the Flagpole
between 6th & 5th at approximately 9:21 am.
This marker is for Campbell McKenna who was from Neptune.
Prior to the runners arriving there is a truck that has all the pictures of all the men & women that are being honored. The truck will stop for everyone to see.
Our fire departments will hang the Flag from their trucks at each marker.
5 years ago our goal was, and still is, to have the Boardwalk lined with people holding a flag while these Runners run through our town.
