2021 Cooper Norcross Run the Bridge Raises Money For The Larc School

On Sunday morning, November 7, 2021, more than 2,000 runners and walkers took to the historic Ben Franklin Bridge to participate in this year’s Cooper Norcross Run the Bridge Event presented by AmeriHealth New Jersey. The popular charity run has raised nearly $5 million for the Larc School since its inception.

This unique 10K run and two-mile bridge walk—one of the most popular in the tristate area—benefits the Larc School, located in Bellmawr, NJ, serving students with a wide range of moderate to severe disabilities. Proceeds from this event enables the Larc School to purchase items that truly help these children make great strides in learning how to speak, walk, and perform other daily activities. The event was held virtually in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“My family has long supported Larc School and is proud to be part of this unique fundraising event,” said George E. Norcross III, chairman of the board at Cooper. “We are delighted to be back together in person for this year’s race, raising funds for a most worthy cause.”

“The pandemic has presented unique challenges to the community, and particularly to many of the families we serve. We are extremely excited to return to a live event,” said Stephanie Riehl, executive director of Larc School. “Through the generous support of our sponsors and participants of the event, we are truly making a difference in the lives of our children with special needs and their families.”

“AmeriHealth New Jersey is proud to support this annual community event,” said AmeriHealth New Jersey Market President Mike Munoz. “We commend the Larc School for the truly incredible work they do to help children of all ages with varying disabilities reach their highest potential.”
