WEST ORANGE, NJ - Nearly 3,000 people are expected when the 2016 Susan G. Komen North Jersey Race for the Cure is held at the Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex in West Orange on Sunday, May 1.

The race, partially sponsored by TAPinto.net, will also be honoring “Forever Fighters" who are Stage IV or metastatic and are fighting breast cancer. Lois Solomon of East Brunswick, who has been battling the disease for seven years, will be the honorary Forever Fighter Ambassador.

“I am very honored to have been chosen to represent all the women and men who are fighting metastatic breast cancer,” Solomon said. “It’s important that people understand more about what it’s like. I’m not a survivor, but I’m surviving. I’m more of a WARRIOR. Every minute of every day, I’m fighting.”

The Komen North Jersey Race for the Cure’s official Master of Ceremonies will be WABC-TV Eyewitness News reporter Anthony Johnson, who has been a member of the the Eyewitness News team since 2001. 

Main events and activities include Official USATF Timed 5K Run, a 5K Walk, a 1.5 Mile Fun Walk, and a Kids for the Cure Color Run sponsored by Medieval Times. For the younger set, the knights from the Lyndhurst Castle of Medieval Times -- along the King and Princess and their heralding trumpeters -- will be marching into the Kid’s Zone with a live jousting tournament.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
