The 1998 September Stride 5K is again being held in memory of Richard "Rick" Rosenbaum. Rick was a local businessman and good friend, who passed away in 1994 from Cystic Fibrosis. His family has established a fund in his name, which helps children who have pulmonary problems receive needed medication and equipment. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Richard Rosenbaum Memorial Fund. We would be happy to accept additional donations to the Fund!
