To the editor:
We want to thank everyone that helped to make our fourth annual Rock 'n' Roll Run Back to School event such a huge success. The event was held on Labor Day at St. Charles Borromeo School in Cinnaminson. Despite the rain toward the end of the event, we doubled the amount of runners this year to 300 and had an unbelievable turnout. The event raised almost $4,500 for St. Charles Borromeo School. Check out our race website at http://runbacktoschool.com/ for more details.

Also, thank you to all the staff at St. Charles Borromeo that helped with use of the facilities for the day.
