“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. ” (1 Cor 9:24)

Nomahegan Park - Cranford, NJ5k Run LogoOn Saturday, June 14, 2008 St. George & St. Shenouda Coptic Orthodox Church of Jersey City, NJ hosted The “Exercise Your Spirit” 5k Run! It was held at Nomahegan Park in Cranford, New Jersey. It was a beautiful sunny day with the temperature at 88 degrees.

We were blessed by our Reverend Fathers, Fr. David Bebawy and Fr. Anthony Basily who came and attended. We raised over 7,000 dollars in pledges and donations to build our new church. We had a huge turnout of people to support our 57 runners. There was in attendance around 150 people for the race and BBQ. The winners each received an Ipod Shuffle for the tremendous feat they accomplished.

The Winners

First Place for the Men – Ashraf Hanna. Go Uncle Ashraf!

First Place for the Women – Diana Misdary

First Place to Raise the Most Money – David Bebawy

Thanks to all those who planned, worked, and labored for this event to be such a HUGE success! A special thank you to our priests for supporting us and a really big and special thanks to Mr. Antony Gabriel for his vision and leadership to bring this fund raising idea to life.
