Hunterdon County Employees
Join Fight Against Cancer
More than 140 Hunterdon County employees came together on Tuesday, October 30 th for the 2 nd Annual ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ fundraising walk. During lunch breaks, each employee took the time to walk a path around the Rt. 12 County Complex to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Freeholder Deputy Director Suzanne Lagay, liaison for The Division of Health, as well as honorary co-chair for the event said, “Due to research, clinical success and innovative therapies, what used to be referred to the ‘War against breast cancer—a deadly disease,’ has become a disease from which many recover and many, many more live in remission with a manageable illness. Both the awareness and money raised here today for The American Cancer Society will make a difference to those in treatment with breast cancer who will receive help with transportation, lodging and counseling during their prescribed treatment. How wonderful of our caring Hunterdon County employees to take such an active role in service and support of this devastating diagnosis. Thank you so very much.”
