The CompleteCare Family Health Foundation hosted its annual Halloween Bone Run and Walk on Saturday, October 15 at Parvin State Park. Runners, walkers, and spectators from around the area came out to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, get some exercise, and compete for prizes.
“The Bone Run always proves to be a fun fall event,” said Kimberly Tweed, vice president of communications and development for CompleteCare Health Network. “It is always great to see so many people come out to support the Foundation and get some exercise.”
Nearly 150 people joined in the Halloween spirit to run or walk the scenic paths around Parvin Lake, located right on the edge of the Pine Barrens.
Many attendees, runners included, wore Halloween costumes to participate in the costume contest for a chance to win gift cards. All guests were invited to a health fair featuring local community organizations, post-race refreshments, and an awards ceremony.
Runners competed in multiple categories for trophies and cash prizes donated by race sponsors. Top overall finishers were:
Elizabeth Petrunis, Age 13: 24:12.8
Chrisa Dustman, Age 46: 24:57.2
Nichole Bonjean, Age 40: 24:58.3
Estevan Barreras, Age 32: 19:39.4
Stephen Hartman, Age 30: 20:10.9
Sam Steiner, Age 27: 20:43.0
The race was timed by TNT Event Management on a USA Track & Field Certified course. Event sponsors include Gateway Community Action Partnership, Premier Orthopaedics, Inspira Health, Amerigroup, AMI, Fralinger Engineering, OceanFirst Bank, and Whibco.
The Bone Run and Walk will be back in October 2023. For more information on how to donate to The CompleteCare Family Health Foundation and get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
