Moretrench Runners Turn Out for Fundraiser

July 9, 2014

On Monday, June 30th, Moretrench fielded a team of 17, including 14 Rockaway employees, for the 5th Annual Battle of the Business 5K Run held at The Green at Florham Park. The benefit was held to raise funds for The Children's Institute, located in Verona, New Jersey, which is a private non-profit New Jersey State Board of Education approved pre-school, elementary, middle and secondary program for students age 3 to 21 with learning disabilities, primarily autism, and is a 501(C)(3) charitable organization.

Team Moretrench surpassed previous years' results, achieving 1st place in both the male and female divisions for small businesses (less than 250 employees in New Jersey). James Myers recorded the fastest individual Moretrench time for the men, with Laura Porras leading the Moretrench ladies, but "the first place trophies are awarded for the effort of the whole team," said Captain Ken Wigg. "Everyone contributed to our success."
