On Sunday, September 20, runners, joggers, walkers and families participated in the 3rd annual ONSF (ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education) PLAY Strong, PLAY Safe Family 5K Run/Walk to benefit ONSF education and community outreach programs.

The race, a USATF certified 5K course, started in front of the Eastern Civic Center and continued through scenic residential streets, along Sound Beach Avenue and, after passing Binney Park, returning to the finish line at the Civic Center.

“The course was designed for all athletic abilities whether you are a serious runner or a power walker,” said Dr. Vadasdi, co-chair of the 5K who is also an accomplished triathlete. Elite runners, corporate challenge teams, joggers, student athletes, weekend warriors, power walkers and families participated.
