The 7th Annual Fleet Teterboro
Airport 5k Run was held Saturday, July 17 at 8:30 a.m. starting at the Jet Aviation
facility. Teterboro Airport suspended flight operations for about 30 minutes.
Over 700 runners ran up and down the main runway at Teterboro Airport for the 5k (3.1
mile) course. "Mini-flyer Dashes" (25-200 yards) were held for children 2
through 12 following the main run.
This year the event was the 2004 USATF-NJ Masters Men's 5k Championship race and included
over $3,000 in total prize money. The event featured over $10,000 in random raffle
Nightmoves provided DJ entertainment. There were plenty of water stations throughout the
race area. Nourishment was available upon the race conclusion. Runners received a
"goody bag" upon departing the race. The Moonachie Volunteer Fire
Department provided emergency and first aid services.
This event was organized by Bergen County United
Way. Fleet Bank was the title sponsor for the fourth year. Presenting
sponsors were Port Authority of NY/NJ, Jet Aviation and AvPorts. Major sponsors included
NYCE Corporation, Pfizer Inc., Playtex Products, Inc., and PSE&G. The supporting
sponsor was Ingersoll-Rand Company. Contributing sponsors were Air Fleet Training Systems,
Alliant Internet Solutions, Diamond Rock Spring Water, Hertz and Valley National Bank.
The race director was Mark Zenobia (On Your Mark Productions). The event
organizers were Krista Garofalo of Bergen County's United Way and Mary Connolly, Community
Volunteer. In addition, many volunteers contributed
in making the 7th Annual 5k run a big success.
The event raised over $30,000 for the health and wellness programs funded by Bergen
County's United Way, bringing the seven-year total to almost $170,000 (net) raised.
Bergen County's United Way is in the business of helping people 24 hours a day, 7
