Hundreds from all over Bergen County came to Van Saun Park in Paramus this Sunday to take part in a walk fundraiser event for Spectrum for Living, a non-profit organization which supports adults with developmental disabilities with housing and clinical services.
The walk kicked off with a performance by the Spectular Spectrums dance team and County Executive Kathleen Donovan and Mike Carpenter, Spectrum chairman, welcomed all to the event. Newark Bears Mascot Ruppert also made a guest appearance.
The non-profit group hoped to raise tens of thousands from the fundraiser. Spectrum CEO Carmine Marchionda told NorthJersey.com the goal for this year was between $60,000 and $75,000.
