The Canuso Foundation and Babe’s Kids third annual Chicken Runs at Midnight was shortened by a violent thunderstorm Friday.
There was still a carnival-like atmosphere before the storm, with activities, food and entertainment.
Last year, more than 2,000 people participated. Proceeds will support Babe’s Kids, Jason Garstkiewicz and Colin Hough. Jason Garstkiewicz, a seventh-grader at the Haddonfield Middle School, was recently diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer in his tibia. Colin Hough is a freshman at Haddonfield Memorial High School and recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of the connective tissue.
