BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - More than 1,000 participants came to Memorial Field to celebrate and honor those impacted by cancer and to raise funds for a special cause as the Summit Area YMCA hosted its 17th Annual Mother’s Day 5K Run / Walk. The family-friendly event also featured a fun magic show, invigorating Zumba dancing, a tot trot, face painting and music.

Proceeds frm the USATF sanctioned event benefited the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA cancer recovery program.

The program, offered at both the Summit and Berkeley Heights YMCAs, is 100% free to all cancer survivors and patients looking to regain their health and strength in a small group, supportive environment. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA participants receive a free 12-week membership to the Y as they work on rebuilding muscle mass, strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and more.

The next 12-week session for LIVESTRONG at the YMCA begins at the Summit YMCA on June 5 through August 23. For more information or to register, contact Sue Fieseler at sue.fieseler@thesay.org or call 908-273-3330

“I signed up because the cause is very dear to my heart being that I am a cancer survivor myself,” said Jen Ciano, a 2018 Mother’s Day 5K Run Walk participant. “I think LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is an incredible program and it is amazing that the Y makes those resources available for cancer survivors. Running has helped me overcome my migraines that are mainly caused by my brain tumor so what better way to help support this program than to run for it!! My son Joshua and I share a love for running so it was super special for us to do it on Mother’s Day.”

Matthew Byrne of Berkeley Heights won first place with a time of 17:31; Jason Riddel of Warren placed second with a time of 18:39; and John Hendy of Berkeley Heights placed third with a time of 18:41. Kate Ashley of Bloomfield won first place overall female with a time of 19:17.

Complete race results are listed here.



"We are so proud of the tremendous outpouring of support from our communities for our cancer recovery program, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA," said Paul Kieltyka, Summit Area YMCA President & CEO. “The Summit Area Y Mother’s Day 5K Run and Walk has become the tradition for all of those we serve to celebrate our mothers while also exhibiting healthy living.”
