In addition to ALS, we here at Morris County want to use this opportunity to raise awareness for another cause. About 1 in 8 women (approximately 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. The Morris County Office of Emergency Management in partnership with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Section and the Morris County Office of Personnel will be collecting funds for the upcoming Making Strides of Parsippany event which will be held on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 8am at the Mack-Cali Business Campus located at 6 Century Drive, Parsippany. Making Strides is a celebration of breast cancer survivorship, a celebration of hope, and an expression of our shared determination to make this breast cancer’s last century.

County of Morris employees as well as members of the public are encouraged to donate to these worthy causes. Donations can be dropped off at the Morris County Office of Emergency Management or the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Section. Both offices are located within the Morris County Public Safety Complex 500 West Hanover, Parsippany 07954. For GPS purposes use Morristown 07960. Please follow this link for directions.
