To the Editor:

It is my understanding that Evan Lerner is up for re-election to the Bridgewater-Raritan Board of Education, and I’m pleased to show my support for his candidacy.  For almost 10 years, Evan has been incredibly committed to Young Survival Coalition (YSC) a nonprofit organization that educations, empowers and connects young women affected by breast cancer.

There is no question of Evan’s long-term dedication. Each year since 2007, Evan has ridden 200 miles over the course of three days to raise funds for our community. Over the last eight years, he has been able to harness support from his network to raise almost $25,000 for our cause.

Evan’s passion for education is clear. He promotes distributing YSC materials and navigators throughout local hospitals, training programs for peer supporters and funding educational programs for young women and their co-survivors who want to learn more about survivorship issues.

I’ve been honored to have Evan be a part of our community and I hope you will consider him for another term.
