The Next Area Event

Runners and walkers, the day is Sunday, Sept. 24, for the fourth annual Survival of the Mills held at Wells Mills County Park in Waretown, to benefit the foundation.

Competitors can choose one of three challenging races, including a seven-stage Triathlon, five-stage Duathlon or a 5K Trail Run/Walk. CrossFit Absecon is the presenter of this fundraiser.

“Our friend Ross Reynolds from Trident Multisport is the race creator/organizer/director,” said David Caldarella of Manahawkin, the namesake of David’s Dream & Believe. “Ross and his wife, Marissa, are the backbone for both of our athletic fundraisers with Survival of the Mills and Run for Hope. Their continued support for our families battling a cancer diagnosis is greatly appreciated by all of us at the foundation.”
