On Saturday, April 19, 2014, the second annual Jersey Mike Rock + Run was held on City Island, where participants ran and/or walked in support of the K+L Guardian Foundation. The event was a huge success, with nearly 600 participants, food trucks, subs from Jimmy Johns, and beer provided by Al Kominski of Al’s of Hampden/Pizza Boy Brewery. The K+L Guardian Foundation was created after the sudden passing of Jersey Mike Van Jura, a local music advocate and pioneer in helping create a local music scene in the area. The beneficiaries of the foundation are his children, but this year they wanted to help another family suffering through the loss of a parent.
