Runner Who Collapsed at Hangover 5K Passes Away

Patrick Brady was a longstanding member of the Central Jersey Road Runners Club.

The runner who collapsed at the New Year's Day Hangover 5K held in Tamaques Park has passed away, according to the Cranford-based Central Jersey Road Runners Club, the race's sponsor.

Patrick Brady, 76, was transported to the hospital Tuesday after eyewitnesses said cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was performed during the 31st annual run. Race organizers said several members of CJRRC are doctors who were on the scene right away and added that "all of our RRCA coaches are First Aid and CPR certified."

A message on the CJRRC's website stated the following:

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our own longstanding CJRRC members Patrick Brady at the Hangover 5k. We will post information about the arrangements as soon as they are provided by his family."

My daughter and I saw the police performing cpr on Mr. Brady and knew immediately this wasn't good. We broke off and said a prayer for that poor man and his family. I suppose I'm just grateful he was surrounded by friends and doing something he loved. God bless.

I can vouch from personal experience that the Westfield Volunteer Emergency squad has been outstanding and the last thing i want to see is the FD tale them over. After all, this is the same FD that let two iconic restaurants and a private residence burn down in the last year and a half.
