Imagine Raises Over $15K at Downtown Westfield Pizza Run

Lisa Espina, Gina Marie Mazzeo, Ashley Pagelow, Pam Tanki, Krista Aslanian and Morgan Toriello.

Five teams comprised of over 40 runners, walkers and cheerleaders, participated in the Downtown Westfield Pizza Run on July 26 and raised over $15,000 in the process. 

“This was our most successful run yet,” said Kathy Vergel, Imagine Development Director. “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who participated. All of the money raised from the Pizza Run goes towards funding and sustaining our peer support programs which are completely free to families for as long as they need.” 

Imagine would also like to thank Keller Williams of Westfield, which hosted the Pizza Run After Party for Imagine race participants, friends and family and their local agents and staff.

“This is the third year they have done this for us,” said Mary Robinson, executive director, “and we couldn’t be more grateful.  In fact they’ve been supporting us since we first opened our doors in Westfield, providing us with free office space before we had a home of our own.” 

Imagine provides free year-round peer support groups for children age 3-18 who have had a parent or sibling die, with concurrent groups for parents and guardians.  Free support groups are also available for young adults 18 and up who have had a friend, sibling or parent die.  Imagine also provides in-home support and support groups for children and teens who have a family member living with a life-altering physical illness. For more information about Imagine, come for a tour offered three times a month. Tour dates can be found by visiting their website at or contact or 908-264-3100.
