On October 20, 2012, the New Jersey Chapter of the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NJ-NCCC) will be hosting its 3rd Annual Halloween 5K for Cervical Cancer to raise awareness about cervical cancer and to raise funds to support our work in New Jersey and elsewhere. The race starts at 10:30AM at Just Jakes, 30 Park Street,and will wind its way through beautiful residential areas of Montclair before returning to JustJakes for an after party. Costumes are optional but are highly encouraged!

All profits from the race will benefit the NCCC, and 70% of the funds raised will be earmarked for use in New Jersey. To help raise funds, simply click "Fundraise" under "Join This Team" on the right and set up your own fundraising page. Enter "NCCC NJ Chapter Halloween 5K for Cervical Cancer" as the event you are fundraising for and follow the steps to set up your account. NOTE: Funds will be raised through the American Social Health Association (ASHA). ASHA is the parent organization of NCCC.

The NCCC NJ Chapter was founded by Cristina Lucchetti Ryan, Bloomfield resident, in June 2009 in memory of her best friend, CaryAnne Cowan, a mother and life-long New Jersey resident who lost her life to cervical cancer in 2007. Cowan had gone without a routine cervical cancer screening for nearly a decade and was only 36 when she was diagnosed with Stage IVB cervical cancer. The primary hope of the NCCC NJ Chapter is that through intensive educational and outreach efforts, the day will come when not one more woman has to lose her life to this preventable disease.
