The renowned Madison-based band Running Late was the featured performer for the second straight year at the Susan G. Komen North Jersey Race for the Cure, held on May 6 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. 

Members of the band, managed by Madison resident and bassist Mike Hall, include Lauren D’Imperio on lead vocals, Noah Giglio, guitar and vocals; Alex Fillimon on keyboard and cello; Ori Yekutiel on drums; and John Hall, saxophone and vocals. 

More than 2,500 people came out to Liberty State Park for this year’s event, which has raised more than $600,000 to date for the fight against breast cancer, with fundraising continuing through Saturday, June 30. This year, Running Late donated its services for the event.
