MANAHAWKIN – Manahawkin Elks Lodge #2340 served up some special support for those who participated in the recent New Jersey Run for the Fallen on Sept. 29. The Elks held a breakfast the morning of the run, feeding over 60 runners.
The Run for the Fallen encourages military service members to run one mile for each New Jersey service member who died during the war on terror.
Accompanied by NJ State Area 1 Ambassador Carlie Evans Manahawkin Elks also manned mile markers, each marker dedicated to a service member who died in the line of duty, in support of Gold Star Families.
Stafford Township Volunteer Fire Co. also came out to fly their flag in a show of support as well.
