Members of the SHU community, including faculty, staff and alumni, fielded a team for the 2014 Corporate FunRun Fairfield 5K and—not only did they have a great time raising money for the Bridgeport YMCA’s Meal on Wheels program, which helped to ensure area children did not go hungry during the summer months—but they also had some success.
Team captain Julia Morgillo was second in the women’s category and second in the women’s team category, along with Bernadette Boyle and Gail Heffron. SHU also had the second-place coed team consisting of Amy Ricci, Frank Novak and Tom Therriault. Other team members were Chloe Dzurka, Deborah Sullivan, Elizabeth Denny, Elizabeth Potenza, Jill Massari, Sally Schettino, Sean Heffron, Jim Carl and Mike Giarratano.
The event took place at 6:30 p.m. on July 31. Dubbed as the world’s best summer office party, it was designed to promote corporate team-building, health/fitness and workplace camaraderie while raising money for a good cause.
