About 100 runners braved the chilly temperatures and pouring rain on Saturday May 19, to participate in the Maniac Magee Run for the Homeless at Chatham Park Elementary School to benefit The Salvation Army of Norristown’s Family Shelter.
The two-mile run, now in its 20th year, was organized by the Chatham Park Parent-Teacher Association to celebrate the lessons learned in the book, “Maniac Magee” by Norristown native Jerry Spinelli who later raised his family in the Chatham Park community.
