Leap For Lungs

June 27, 2019

I had the pleasure of being a part of the Leap for Lungs event at Ridge HS. The campaign and the Bernards Township Democratic Committee both sponsored squares on the worlds longest hopscotch course! The kids, the adults that helped out, and the sheer determination to get this accomplished and to raise money for lung cancer research was amazing. Everyone should be congratulated on their work, achievements, and dedication to such an important cause! I happened to be interviewed during this event but that video will be posted once it has been edited and uploaded. Thank you again to this great group of people!!

It went on for miles!

Came out on Saturday to show my support for this cause!
Some of the BTDems.org squares. The kids were rushing to get them all stenciled in. They were to paint over them on Sunday.
