Walkathon & 5K Rock N' Run in Nomahegan Park in Cranford. The events, co-chaired by Freeholder Chairman Estrada, Janet Keating and Lou and Celia Fernandez, raised $80,000 to benefit the Love Hope Strength Foundation and Valerie Fund. Peters, of the Welsh rock band The Alarm, is a two-time cancer survivor and a founder of the charity Love Hope Strength Foundation. The Valerie Fund is a not-for-profit organization established to provide support for the comprehensive health care of children with cancer and blood disorders. Approximately 400 runners and 250 walkers took part the fundraising events.
