In 2010, O'Connell's Run was started in honor of Emmett O’Connell, a pediatric Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patient who is treated at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. Now in its forth year, we are proud to stand with so many other CF children & their families who also receive treatment at The Cystic Fibrosis Center at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. All race proceeds go to the hospital.
