LITTLE FERRY, N.J. — The Annual Matt Fenton 5K will be held on Sunday, June 5 in Little Ferry.
The race will honor former borough resident Marine Sgt. Matthew J. Fenton, who was fatally injured while conducting combat operations in Iraq at 24 years old.
Fenton was made an honorary Little Ferry Police Officer at his funeral — the job he was to hold upon his return to Little Ferry.
Proceeds from the 9 a.m. race will support first responders along with the Semper Fi Fund, which provides services for wounded and critically ill service members from all branches of the United States Armed Forces.
