Dear South Plainfield Business Owner,

          Cancer will be the number one cause of death on this planet and one in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. Cancer has taken a toll on billions of families already, but the students of John E. Riley School have, for the last several years, decided to join the fight against cancer and make a difference with our annual “39 Minute Walk to a Cure”.

On May 24, 2019 the students, teachers, and staff of John E. Riley School will be united to once again participate in the 12th Annual “39 Minute Walk to a Cure”. We are once again seeking the support of our local businesses to help aid in our fundraising efforts by becoming an event sponsor. By becoming an event sponsor with a donation, your company will help us reach our goal and truly make a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer. By sending us your name and address and becoming a sponsor your company’s name will appear on a sponsorship board that will be displayed during the event.

If we let cancer pick us off in silence:

  • without screaming as it takes people we love
  • without protesting at the top of our lungs as more and more of us are affected

 NOTHING will change! We encourage our children to make a difference in the world, and with your help they can experience that first hand.


          Last year we were able to raise almost $6,000 including the support of our local businesses. This year the students have set a goal of $8,000. Any help you can give them to help them reach their goal will be greatly appreciated!!


Thank you for your anticipated support.
