About This Activity
Sunday, October 22, 2017 is the 6th Annual Rutherford PBA Halloween Foot Pursuit, a 5K Run/1 mi. walk through scenic Rutherford streets. Proceeds from this event will benefit Rutherford PBA Local #300 and the Ersalesi Scholarship Fund.
The Rutherford PBA Local #300 in the past has sponsored Little League baseball teams, Babe-Ruth teams, Safe-Night Out, Jr. Police Academy, Senior Scholarships, bicycle awareness for children, NJ Special Olympics Torch Run, as well as greatly supporting other charitable organizations. We also support fellow officers and families that are sick or have fallen on hard times.
The Ersalesi Scholarship Fund was started in memory of Elizabeth "Betty" Ersalesi, and her husband, Henry. Mrs. E, as she was affectionately known, was a lifelong resident of Rutherford and a teacher within the Rutherford School System for 36 years. Mrs. E believed in "teaching kids", not "teaching a curriculum". She celebrated daily holidays, and was known for her love of Disney. Mr. Henry "Buddy" Ersalesi was a Rutherford resident for 42 years. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force, a mechanic, and a businessman. Both Mr. & Mrs. Ersalesi believed that a passion for hard work and a desire to grow (both academically and vocationally) were necessary to succeed. The Ersalesi Family wishes to honor their memory by offering a scholarship to a student that best represents the qualities that they are remembered for.
