Bergen County woman treks across Garden State for charity

? A Bergen County woman is running across New Jersey to raise money for disabled children.

Jody-Lynn Reicher, 43, started her journey Thursday morning in Sussex County. She plans to end in Cape May County two days later. Reicher is running to help reimburse medical costs for disabled children through the Mary Therese Rose Fund.

The seasoned runner is up to the challenge. Reicher says she has modified her diet and sleep pattern so she can run without stopping. She ran across the Mojave desert three times in the middle of summer in the past.
