Join Jersey Troopers, St. Catharine School, and Trinity Hall High School for:
Run with Veronica
Veronica Szenzenstein is the 15-year-old daughter of Major Glen Szenzenstein, Deputy Branch Commander of our Field Operations Section. This past February, Veronica was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer that affects the immune system, which protects the body against infections. This type of cancer is deadly and can spread, as in Veronica's case, but it is beatable.
It's difficult to anticipate how anyone will react to being diagnosed with cancer, especially a young adult, but adversity is surely a true test of character. Strength, courage, and compassion are just a few words used to describe Veronica and why she's inspired so many of us here in the State Police. As Veronica has been courageously battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma, she wasn't just worried about herself, she was worried about others. So she volunteered to take part in a number of research studies to help find less caustic treatments and to support an event in her honor to raise awareness and funding for Hodgkin's Lymphoma research through "Run with Veronica." "Run with Veronica" is a 5k run or 1-mile fun run/walk event with all of the proceeds going to research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), so that one day no other child will have to endure this terrible disease. Join Veronica, Jersey Troopers, friends, and family on Saturday, June 16th at Saint Catharine School, 301 2nd Avenue, Spring Lake, N.J. at 8:30 a.m. to help raise money and awareness!
As a child, Veronica may have looked up to all the Troopers like her dad, but today, we're all looking up to her! Let's give Veronica a hand!
