Sgt Matt Fenton Memorial 5K
Jun 2, 2019 @ 9:00 am
Little Ferry, NJ – The Sgt Matt Fenton Memorial 5K is hosted in memory of Matt Fenton who was lost to us on May 5, 2006. This twenty-four year-old Little Ferry resident was a larger than life figure to those who were blessed to know him. Fatally injured while conducting combat operations in Iraq, Sgt. Fenton’s service to our Country shall not be forgotten. The twenty-four year old Little Ferry resident is a symbol of hope and valor within our community, and this 5K Run/Walk is only a small token of our appreciation for him.
At his funeral, Sgt. Fenton was made an honorary Little Ferry Police Officer, the job he was to hold upon his return to Little Ferry.
Sgt. Fenton was with the Forces Reserve’s Inspector and Instructor Staff, 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division Fort Devens, Massachusetts.
