OUR COURSE MAP

ABOUT MATT COLLURA...

Matt Collura is a 33 year old resident of Monroe Township, NJ and a lifelong runner. In March 2011, he suffered severe brain trauma in a snowboarding accident. That year, a group of friends and family organized this race to raise Matt's spirits and to help support his recovery.

Matt is using the funds to receive the intensive physical therapy and equipment needed in order to continue working toward his ultimate goal of walking (and running) without assistance.
