Seabrook Staffers Give Their Time to Help Hydrate Runners as Part of Ongoing Volunteerism to Community

May 28, 2014

TINTON FALLS, NJ - Some very special, and dedicated, members of the Seabrook staff, along with members of their family, played a crucial role in helping out at the recent Annual RunAPalooza, which raised benefitted the New Jersey Special Olympics. Because of their work, many runners stayed hydrated, continued and finished their races.
The Seabrook Erickson Way Values Committee is a group of employees who regularly work to improve the community-at-large one project at a time. These individuals adhere to one of the important standards set forth by Seabrook's development company/manager Erickson Living---helping others when they can.
Seabrook Senior Human Resources Manager John Bryzski, his two sons Jake and Jarod; Seabrook Continuing Care Nurse Lauren Motyka; Seabrook Home Support Coordinator Kimberly Gibbs; Seabrook Staff Development Coordinator Mary Hunt, and her husband Roger Offenhauer; Seabrook Dining Services Administrator Niki Clay and Seabrook Dining Services wait staff members Kyla Hughley and Keanu Radgman all worked to ensure runners were properly hydrated, setting up more than 60 gallons of Gatorade and 15 cases of water, as well as filled up large jugs of water. All told, runners ran through about 5,000 cups of liquid.
John Brzyski said, "I've been involved in this project to help the runners at RunAPalooza for several years now and am always amazed at the outpouring of support that the event receives. It is inspiring to witness all the runners, and their family and friends who come to root them on, and be part of a great day. It is also great to expose my two sons to see what a caring and volunteer-oriented community Seabrook is."
For assisting the Jersey Shore Running Club, the organizers gave the Seabrook Resident Care Fund a $750 donation. The Resident Care Fund provides future financial support for residents who may find that they have exhausted their financial resources due to unforeseen circumstances such as long-term illness.
