"We recently honored Randy Foye for his support of Children's
Hospital of New Jersey and our patients," said John A. Brennan, MD,
MPH, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newark Beth Israel Medical
Center and Children's Hospital of New Jersey and Executive Vice President
of Barnabas Health. "This event is really about bettering the lives
of the children we serve."
"Partnering with the Children's Hospital of New Jersey at Newark
Beth Israel Medical Center for Regina's Run is so important to me
because the event honors my mother and helps families in my hometown.
I started my foundation to give back to the Newark community because I
know my story can inspire kids to believe in the power of their dreams
and then work hard to achieve them," said Foye, an 8th-year guard
in the NBA. "Regina's Run gives us an opportunity to bring kids
out to the park for a free day of fitness, in addition to raising money
for the Children's Hospital and the Randy Foye Foundation. As an athlete,
living a healthy lifestyle is very important and it's something I
want to instill in kids throughout the world."
Regina's Run is named in honor of Foye's late mother, Regina. Foye's
parents both died before Foye's 6th birthday. Despite hardships, Foye
graduated Villanova University where he played basketball and has been
playing in the NBA for the past eight years.
