Paramus NJ, Just days before the world’s best golfers tee off at the first event of the PGA TOUR’s season-ending FedExCup Playoffs, runners and walkers of all abilities are invited to the grounds of The Ridgewood Country Club for THE NORTHERN TRUST Fore! Miler Community Run & Walk presented by Stryker. The four-mile race takes participants inside the ropes at Ridgewood, with all proceeds benefitting Center for Food Action, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Official Charities of THE NORTHERN TRUST.

THE NORTHERN TRUST features the top 125 players in the FedExCup standings and will be played at The Ridgewood Country Club on August 21-26.
