This year's Lou Lanzalotto Memorial 5k Run at the Terri Roemer Paramus Run was held in honor of PHS alum and local runner Gabrielle Reuveni, a 20-year old resident who was killed when she was struck by a drunk driver while jogging in July. Friends and Family turned out donning purple "Run for Gabby" shirts to participate in the race. Jacqueline Reuveni finished the 5K in 34:55.59 and husband Michael followed at 41:21.56.
Kyle Price of Milltown (16:12) was the top 5K men's finisher just barely beating out Paramus resident Andrew Capizzi (16:48). Thirteen-year-old Giavanna Tabbachino of Emerson (20:20) closed the gap between herself and Oradell's Janna Danbe (20:42) in the women's division.
Local residents Nicholas Paolazzi placed second (19:31) in the Master's Men, Motohiro Yamane (19:39) was first in the Female 35-39 group, Debbie Bessen (25:23) led the 45-49 group and Rhoda Conant (39:16) topped the 65-69 group. In the Marty Roemer 10K race, Sarah Cohen finished the 65-69 age group in 1:10.29.
