“I’m guessing most of the people who run the 5K are a combination of people who are using it as a tuneup run, and they run larger races, and people who are getting into running and it’s a steppingstone . . . ,” said Jason Lipset, race director of the Long Island Marathon. “And of course you have a lot of charities and stuff, and 5K is sort of a distance that more or less anybody can do in a reasonable amount of time.”

About 75 of those running Saturday were raising about ,000 for the Michigan-based Williams Syndrome Association, said Rob Dell’Unto, 46, of Rockville Centre, whose 12-year-old daughter, Julia, has the syndrome. The genetic condition causes developmental delays and medical problems such as cardiovascular disease.

This is the ninth year that Long Islanders have been raising money for the association through marathon-weekend events, he said. Others have participated in similar events nationwide, which also are designed to raise awareness about the syndrome.

    Hundreds of thousands of people in New Jersey either suffer from Alzheimer's disease or care for someone who does, and for the past two years one Garden State journalist has made it his mission to pull from his personal experience with dementia to help guide them. Now, that journalist is being honored for his work.

    Tony Dearing, the director of news operations for NJ Advance Media, was honored Thursday evening by Alzheimer's New Jersey for his efforts to raise awareness of dementia in the Garden State.

    Dearing, who in 1979 began his journalism career in Michigan and joined NJ.com in 2012, was awarded the group's Spirit Award for his "outstanding volunteerism in raising awareness about Alzheimer's disease," according to a press release. Dearing was honored at the group's 2018 gala in Cedar Grove.

    "It's not a one-and-done thing for him," Ken Zaentz, the President and CEO of Alzheimer's New Jersey, said. "It's a commitment. He believes in what we do, he believes in how important raising public awareness in Alzheimer's disease is."

    Why your best defense against memory loss is to catch it early

    Dearing regularly authors a series of columns about dementia, its effects and how it can be managed.

    The columns were spurred by the death of Dearing's mother, Carla Dearing, in 2014. She had struggled with frontotemporal dementia, which is less common than Alzheimer's, and Dearing said that the experience of struggling to be a caregiver for her pushed him to learn more about dementia with the hope of teaching others.

    "I've always been very candid that I handled it very poorly," Dearing said. "I was in denial. I was uneducated on these issues. I did not understand what was happening."

    Dearing added that his mother was heavily involved in community service, and he sees his columns as a service to others that will honor her memory.

    "My mother was the model of community service," Dearing said. "I honestly feel like she sees what I'm doing and she approves."

    Dearing has found a dedicated audience for for his columns, particularly among elderly readers who are worried about dementia's impact on their own lives.

    "I've been surprised, borderline stunned, how much readership there is for this," Dearing said. "They see the threat of [Alzheimer's] as more frightening than anything that could possibly happen to them."

    Over 180,000 New Jersey residents have Alzheimer's disease, and over 450,000 more are caregivers, according to Alzheimer's New Jersey.
