This Sunday Monmouth Park will host Kortney’s Challenge, a two mile fun run/walk. Proceeds from Kortney’s Challenge will go to the Kortney Rose Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising funds to support research and education related to the treatment and cure of pediatric brain tumors.

            The race will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the track’s Oceanport Avenue entrance and will end two miles later in the Grandstand. Runners will also receive free Grandstand admission to the park with registration to Kortney’s Challenge. Participants can register on race day in person beginning at 8:30 a.m., or online at www.thekortneyrosefoundation.org.

            Nonparticipants can also receive free admission to the park by wearing pink and showing support for pediatric brain tumor research, or by participating in Food Bank Day and donating a canned food or a non-perishable item. All food donations will go to the Monmouth/Ocean County Food Bank.

            Monmouth’s gates will open at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, with the first race set for 12:50 p.m.
