I learned about Ryan's Run a few years ago, and it is a very special event. The Kaiser family lost their son Ryan of heart disease in January 2003, and decided to create a fund in Ryan's honor to help give financial assistance to local families with critically ill children, fund doctors and hospital groups specializing in the care and cure of pediatric heart patients and to build children's playgrounds. Ryan's Run has been an awesome event over the years.

Ryan's Run is a 5k run and 1 mile fun run that takes place Saturday June 30th at 5pm at Mountain Hills School, Atlantic Highlands. There is a great feeling of community at this event, and it's a lot of fun for the whole family! If you want all the information about Ryan's Run, just visit www.ryansrun.org.
