33rd Annual Mt. Bethel Elementary School Fun Run

Each year the Mt. Bethel PTA sponsors a fun run to raise money to support the school.  When Brielle heard about this she was excited to signup – her first official running race. As a former runner, I was happy to see and support her enthusiasm for running!
