Ridgewood NJ, Retired Fairview Police Chief, Frank DelVecchio, fellow police officers and elected officials, will run/bike the 4th annual September 11th Remembrance Run/Bike, September 11, 2016 hosted by the Run for Hope Foundation. This year’s run, , all proceeds raised will support helping the homeless and fighting drug addiction.

The 26-mile run/bike will begin at 7:45 a.m. at the Ridgewood Wild Duck Pond, across from 1200 East Ridgewood Avenue, and conclude at the World Trade Center Memorial at approximately 11a.m. The course travels from the Duck Pond, through Bergen County, over the George Washington Bridge and onto the River Path along the Westside Highway before ending across from One World Trade Center.

“On this 15th anniversary on the attacks on our nation, it is important to remember there are people struggling with homelessness and drug addiction; especially veterans” said DelVecchio as he trains for the run. “We need to work together to provide the resources and assistance to those in the greatest need and to combat poverty, homelessness and drug addiction.”

A number of people will join DelVecchio in the run. Several participants have already signed up, including, Bergen County Freeholder Chair Steve Tanelli, Freeholder John Felice, officers from the Guttenberg Police Department and others who plan to bike or run.

The Run for Hope Foundation is a national foundation that raises money for charity through walks, run and other physical activities. DelVecchio completed a 106 mile run after Hurricane Sandy in 31 hours, where The Run for Hope Foundation used the funds to help families rebuild and funds raised last year to end violence have been used to fund youth programs in Paterson called Street 2 Street, the Covenant House and Spring House. With committed, spirited and dedicated participants, the Run for Hope Foundation hopes to achieve the same success to help the homeless and fight the epidemic of drug addiction.
