PHILADELPHIA, PA – NOVEMBER 3, 2013 – Rodriguez Consulting LLC (Rodriguez) is pleased to announce that we are a corporate sponsor of the Cooper-Norcross Run the Bridge 10K, the largest 10K in the tri-state area.  The race takes place this Sunday, November 3, at 8:30AM and starts at the base of the Ben Franklin Bridge.  Proceeds from this unique 10K run and two mile bridge walk benefit the deserving children with special needs of the Larc School in Bellmawr, NJ.  

"We are excited to be sending a number of employees to participate in this event and are proud to be a sponsor of such a worthy cause," stated Lou Rodriguez, CEO. 

Eight employees participated in the event.  Malin Viberg edged out Lou Rodriguez by two seconds with a team best time of 49:40.  However, the hero of the day was Chris Nagy who completed the race despite running the last mile with a dislocated shoulder after some runners accidentally fell on top of him.
