Run/Walk for Nikhil Set for Sept. 22 at West Orange High School

September 4, 2013 at 9:16 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - The third annual Stop for Nikhil 5K Run/Walk will take place on Sunday, Sept. 22, beginning at 7:30 a.m. at West Orange High School, 51 Conforti Ave.  The course is "flat and rolling in a residential neighborhood" and is USATF certified (Code: NJ05924LMB).

The community is invited to join and run/walk with family, friends, co-workers and more, to honor the memory of loved ones that passed away or were seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents. 

On June 11, 2011, Nikhil Badlani, a bright, happy child who excelled in music, passed away when another driver ran a stop sign on Wyoming Avenue. The Nikhil Badlani Foundation was established to honor his memory in July 2011.  

Statistics show that nationwide in 2011, 3,400 teens aged 16-20 years old died in traffic fatalities. The Nikhil Badlani Foundation has worked tirelessly since its inception to promote traffic safety awareness and to provide the ability for other students that shared his love of music to study through a special program called "Music for Nikhil" which is offered to middle and high school students.

The foundation has also provided special training for West Orange High School Driver's Ed students; helped to donate a Driving Simulator to West Orange High School; and distributed scholarships to graduating seniors involved in music.

Go to  www.stopfornikhil.org to register and participate. You can register as a family or an individual, join an existing team, or start your own and become a team captain.

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.  

 

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...

When Smart Women Watch Stupid Television

“Hey honey, what time...” began my husband.
