NORTH CALDWELL, NJ — In an effort to help fund research for an early-detection method and a cure to lung cancer, Prelude to a Cure, an organization founded by Claire Mattern, is hosting its first 5K event in North Caldwell on Saturday, June 11, in memory of West Caldwell resident Pat Glennon.

Over the past four years, Prelude to a Cure has donated more than $50,000 to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The proceeds from Saturday’s 5K Run/Walk for a Cure through Essex County’s Hilltop Reservation will be donated in honor of board member Brian Glennon's mother, who lost her fight against lung cancer in March of 2015.

“Unfortunately people don't realize that lung cancer is the top cancer killer for men and women,” said Mattern. “So we're trying to raise awareness as well as funds for research."

Sponsored by Thomas F. Ercolano Aia, Architect, and Brian and Elisse Glennon, this inaugural 5K will take place on paved roads, gravel roads, rugged trails through the woods and a trail through a meadow of wildflowers and natural grasses.

There will also be a live DJ, free waters and snacks, giveaways and fantastic prizes.  All participants will receive 20-percent discount coupons for massages and facials at A Touch of Well Being, bags with hand sanitizers from The Doctor’s Office/Urgent Care and the Green Point Juicery will have a stand at the finish line giving away samples and selling their natural products.

Check in for the event begins at 8 a.m. and will be followed by the 5K trail run/walk at 9:30 a.m. and an Award Ceremony at 11:15 a.m. Sign up for the run by clicking HERE

I am truly awed by the Olympics.  Watching these superb young athletes on TV inspires me to renew my membership to the gym and pursue my lifelong dream of taking home the gold.  

 

The problem is that in my deluded head, I can see actually see myself standing atop the podium.  I am wrapped in a puffy designer ski coat with a huge piece of bling slung around my neck ...
