Jared Fogle, "The SUBWAY Guy," will serve as Master of Ceremonies of the
4 Miler at Garret Mountain, sponsored by accounting firm SaxBST
Saturday, September 6. The long-time healthy eating advocate and runner
will serve as the official starter of the third annual event to benefit
Life Department at St.
Joseph's Children's Hospital in Paterson, N.J.
"Not only is Mr. Fogle's personal weight loss and exercise story
inspirational, his efforts to combat childhood obesity through his
foundation align with SaxBST's mission to help children live happier,
healthier lives," said Robert Paz, SaxBST co-managing partner. "We are
grateful he is joining us at the Third Annual 4 Miler as our master of
ceremonies, helping our runners and walkers get off on the right foot."
SUBWAY also is donating 500 sandwiches for participants of the 4-mile
run, 1.5-mile trail walk and kids' dashes. The challenging and scenic
course is USA Track and Field (USATF) certified, offering a mix of both
hilly and flat surfaces, with mile clocks and water stops. All proceeds
from this event support the Child Life Department, which provides vital
programs to relieve the stress and anxiety associated with inpatient
hospitalization, outpatient ambulatory procedures and treatments.
The 568-acre recreational Garret Mountain Reservation, an area landmark,
is located at 288 Rifle Camp Road in Woodland Park, N.J. Race day
entertainment includes a DJ, prize drawings, children's activities and
post-race refreshments. Custom technical t-shirts will be provided to
participants while supplies last.
The 4-mile run will begin at 9 a.m., followed by a trail walk at 9:10
a.m. and kids' dashes at 10:15 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for overall
male and female winners, as well as to winners in the 4 Miler age
groups. All participating youngsters will receive finishing ribbons.
Founded in 2012 by one of SaxBST's predecessor firms, Sax Macy Fromm &
Co., the 4 Miler at Garret Mountain raised $43,000 in its inaugural year
for St. Joseph's Children's Hospital's Pediatric Hematology/Oncology
Department. In 2013, participation grew to more than 400 runners and
walkers, and 40 business and individual sponsors, raising $62,000 for
the hospital's Child Life Department.
