To help kick off the race, the Jersey Follettes, an up-and-coming performance group, will sing the National Anthem. Bethany Watson from Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show will also be on hand. Local children are welcome to come out and participate in a Fun Run and in various games hosted by ZogSports along Pier A in the afternoon.
