The NJ Run for the Fallen passed through Berkeley Township on Saturday.
The NJ Run for the Fallen is a team of military runners from Joint Base MDL and other locations throughout the U.S. who come together to honor every NJ service member who has died since 9/11. They run one mile to represent every fallen NJ service member.
The runners begin their 200 mile journey in Cape May and ended in Holmdel, at the Vietnam Memorial Museum.
Mayor Carmen Amato spoke to the crowd and thanked the runners for their dedication to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Berkeley Township is home to the largest Veteran population in Ocean County.
On behalf of the Township Council, Mayor Carmen Amato urges all citizens in remembering our fallen heroes and offers our deepest condolences to their families and loved ones.
