The Gateway Regional family lost one of its most special members when Cheryl Baldosaro passed away from cancer in October 2020. In honor of her memory, we are holding a 5k run/walk to warm up our bodies because Cheryl absolutely hated being cold. Proceeds from this event will be split between families in need at Gateway and a scholarship in honor of Cheryl's memory to be awarded yearly to two Gateway seniors.

The race begins Saturday, March 26, at 10am with packet pickup beginning at 9am! This year we will have a rain date on Sunday, March 27. Festivities will continue until 1pm.
The race begins and ends at Gateway Regional High School and runs through Woodbury Heights. Vendors and a basket raffle will be held on the football field and a DJ will keep the party going!
Register with multiple people at a time and lower the website fees! Also, create or join a group when you register and challenge each other for the best times. Perfect timing for spring sports preseason! The group with the largest number of members will get their name printed on the back of the shirts with the rest of the race's sponsors.
This year the race will be live, unlike last year's virtual race. However, if you don't want to run the race live you can pick up your swag bag that morning and run the race on your own. You just won't be eligible for the first place prizes.

Cheryl Baldosaro was a beloved member of Gateway Regional's faculty. She passed away in October 2020 at 52 and her absence has deeply affected the Gateway community. Cheryl was a special education teacher and spent most of her time teaching Academic Skills, working tirelessly with struggling students to help them with their classes. She was known to bring in snacks for her students and magic cookie bars for her colleagues. She also enjoyed beaming with pride when she talked about her children, Jessi and Alex, as well as her husband of 29 years, Anthony. Cheryl was almost always cold and wore layers of shirts, sweaters and turtlenecks, hence the theme of the 5k! Everyone that knew her loved her and appreciated her. Cheryl was kind, friendly and approachable, and her friends were lucky to know her.
