Susan Zabransky Hughes Memorial 5K Run/Walk

The Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation recently held the 7th Annual Susan Zabransky Hughes Memorial 5K Run/Walk in Saddle River. More than 800 people took part in the USATF certified event, including 80 cadets from the Bergen County Police Academy. The event is sponsored by the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation and the Run for Sue Committee in memory of Saddle River resident, Susan Zabransky Hughes, who passed away from cervical cancer in July 2011 at the age of 46. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to fund an inaugural scholarship at the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall University and to continue funding a riding program at Pony Power Therapies in Mahwah for pediatric oncology patients.
