The Summit Area YMCA invites all members of the community to celebrate Mother’s Day at the 11th annual Mother’s Day 5K Race/Walk to be held on Sunday, May 13 at Memorial Field in Berkeley Heights.  Hosted by the Berkeley Heights YMCA and Summit YMCA, proceeds from this year’s chip-timed, run will benefit the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA Program, a 12-week, free, cancer recovery program for adult cancer survivors.

Runners are encouraged to run in honor of or in memory of a family member or friend whose life has been affected by cancer.  Runners can register online at www.thesay.org as an individual or as a team.  A new fundraising component enables racers to raise funds online by creating their own friend-raising pages that allows racers to reach out to friends to support a cause that is meaningful to them.   The Mother’s Day 5K Race will follow its traditional USTAF-sanctioned route through Berkeley Heights neighborhoods, starting and finishing at Memorial Field.  The race start is at 9:00 am, with a Tot Trot scheduled for 10:00 am. Same day race registration is from 7:30 am to 8:30 am.  T-shirts are guaranteed to all who register by May 3.  This year’s Mother’s Day 5K will also include a 50:50 Raffle, tickets which can be purchased at the Berkeley Heights YMCA, the Summit YMCA or The Learning Circle YMCA.


For more information contact Lisa Monaghan, 908-464-8373, lisa.monaghan@theSAY.org,  or Heather Worth, 908-273-3330, heather.worth@theSAY.org. Register online at www.theSAY.org, or in person at the Berkeley Heights YMCA, 550 Springfield Avenue, or at the Summit YMCA, 67 Maple Street.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks. Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) are a major reason why the S&P 500 rallied so much in 2017. Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
