Cops to Host 5K, Benefit Long Valley Teen

Run Like Lightning takes off rain or shine Saturday morning at Middle School.

Amidst the flurry of fundraising activity in Long Valley this year to support a local teen battling cancer, the Washington Township Police Benevolence Association Local #301 is putting its efforts toward the cause as well.

On Saturday, Oct. 6, the PBA will host a charitable 5K fun run and walk at the Long Valley Middle School titled "Run Like Lighting," with all proceeds benefitting 13-year-old Glenn Lightner, afflicted by brain cancer since 2007.

The event will be held behind the Long Valley Middle School at 53 East Mill Road, and is open to everyone. Registration for the event is ongoing, and available Saturday morning at 8 a.m. The run and walk begin at 9 a.m.

Registration is $25 per person and $55 for a family.

To find out more about the event, go here. 

Lightner, currently undergoing various forms of chemotherapy treatment and laser surgeries to keep recurring tumors from his brain, recently had a setback when more masses appeared on a recent MRI. 

The family will head to the University of Frankfurt, Germany for alternative treatments once the teen is medically cleared to fly after suffering from multiple seizures.
