SUMMIT, NJ - The opportunity to run through the streets of the Hilltop City -- and 'make a difference' in the process -- is just around the corner as, in slightly more than three weeks time, the Summit Police Athletic League (P.A.L.) will host the inaugural "Making a Difference 5K," which, this year, will be honor Summit Police Detective Matthew Tarentino and benefit his family.

The "Making a Difference 5K" -- sponsored by Atlantic Health System's Overlook Medical Center in Summit -- will take place September 9, beginning at 9 a.m., and consist of two separate events: a 5K run and a one-mile walk / fun run to accommodate participants of varying levels of interest and ability. Both the 5K and the one-mile walk / run will feature scenic courses through downtown Summit, award prizes for top finishers, and provide post-race food and entertainment. Each participant will receive a commemorative race T-Shirt.

"Atlantic Health System's Overlook Medical Center and the Summit PAL have had a successful history of collaboration throughout the history of the 5K, and this year opted to transition organizing duties to the PAL with continued support by Overlook," said Alan Lieber, president of Overlook Medical Center, who added, “Atlantic Health System’s Overlook Medical Center is proud to continue to support this beloved community tradition that brings together people from throughout our region to race to make a difference,” said Alan Lieber, president of Overlook Medical Center. “Collaborating with local organizations is an essential ingredient to our mission of making our communities healthier, and we are excited to support the Summit PAL as it guides this year's poignant event benefiting the family of Detective Tarentino."

“Detective Matthew Tarentino was a competitive runner who thoroughly enjoyed the sport,” explains Summit Police Officer and run coordinator Kathleen Maggiulli. “Initiating this run in Matt’s name to benefit his family is a fitting tribute that would mean the world to him. The Summit Police Department is proud to participate alongside the PAL and sincerely thanks the community for joining us.”

Tarantino, 29, lost his life in a three-car vehicle crash that occurred May 30 at 6:20 a.m. on Interstate Highway 78 in Bernards. The incident also claimed the life of another driver, and resulted in non-life threatening injuries to a third motorist.

A fund established for Tarentino's family at youcaring.com has, as of August 17, raised nearly $600,000.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
