Thank you all for a great event!

Getz5K-020Brief Description

The Getzelmania 5K is a yearly fund-raising fun run, sponsored by The Bridge Community Church of Morrisville, NC for the family of Stephen Getzelmann. Stephen died suddenly from a Strep-A infection in December of 2011. This is the Church’s way of giving back and supporting his family. Proceeds from this event will go towards the Comfort Zone Camp, a bereavement camp for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary care giver. This year, we are proud to partner with The Town of Morrisville in making this a great day for Stephen’s family and our community!
