Date set for run honoring Cherry Hill's Kane

The second annual Jeremy Kane Benefit Run will be held on May 1, at 10:40 a.m. at Cherry Hill High School East, officials said today. Registration is at 9 a.m.

 Kane, a Cherry Hill resident, was killed in January 2010 by a suicide bomb attack while on patrol in the Helmand Province in Afghanistan. The 22-year-old was a lance corporal in the United States Marine Corps and was a criminal justice major at the Camden Campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

The two-mile run, which is being sponsored by Rutgers–Camden’s student veterans group, will conclude at Congregation M’kor Shalom on Evesham Road, Kane’s place of worship.

 The inaugural Jeremy Kane run held last spring raised $10,000.  All proceeds will go toward the Jeremy Kane Scholarship Fund to help veterans enrolled at Rutgers–Camden.
