Sea Bright: This past weekend the KDM foundation held the 12th annual three-mile fun run which starts in Sea Bright, continues to Monmouth Beach, and back. Unlike other runs in the past, organizers decided to raise money for the Sea Bright Recreation Center and to give back to a community adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Runners from all over Monmouth Count, New York, a New Jersey gathered to take part in this fun run. Doug Rice and Kelly Hogan of Split Second Racing provided the technology needed to monitor all of the pre-registered racers. They have been helping out with this event for the past 6 years. There were approximately 470 registered runners; however, race organizers felt that there would be more like 800 runners in total.
Racers picked up their packets, t-shirts, and other race memorabilia in the Recreation Center from 9:30 to 11:00. At 11:00 the race began. Runners of all ages, took to the main street and headed south towards Monmouth Beach as they began their three mile trek down and back.

KDM Board Members: Bill Crow, David Devlin, Steve Kane, Dan Kelly, Gregg Kennedy, Michael Panter, Jeffrey White recognize that events like these are not possible with the cooperation and support of: the Sea Bright Police, the Sea Bright Governing Body, the Department of Public Works (DPW), and the Recreational Committee. Combined, all of these groups helped to make this event possible. Dan Kelly, believes that this event will raise over $10,000 for the Recreation Center and hopes that events like these can, and will, continue for years to come.
