CBCF TO HOST 10TH ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC

2017 Gold Outing

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) will host its 10th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, August 7th at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., site of the USGA 2012 Men’s Senior Amateur Championship, the 2014 MGA Mid-Amateur Championship and has been one of Golf Week’s “Top 100 Classic Courses in America.”

The annual “Pink is the New Green®” event is one of the most popular and successful events sponsored by CBCF having raised millions to assist the efforts of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor, Dr. Larry Norton.  Dr. Norton, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is leading the fight against breast cancer with trailblazing work, and has discovered that cancer cell mobility and the interactions between the cancer cell and its microscopic environment are the key pathways to understanding and eventually eradicating breast cancer.

Reservations are now open for both the morning and afternoon sessions of The Golf Classic.  The morning session will begin at 7:00 a.m. with registration and breakfast, followed by a shotgun start at 8:15 a.m.  The afternoon session will begin at 10:30 a.m. with registration and breakfast and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.  An $18,000 winner-take-all-chip-off will take place immediately following conclusion of play.

The day concludes with a cocktail reception and awards dinner where Dr. Norton will address guests.  A raffle drawing will also be held for a 2017 Ford Mustang convertible, courtesy of Fette Ford. Those interested in participating in the 10th Annual Golf Classic can call (973) 471-CBCF (2223) or email register@curebreastcancerfoundation.org. Continue reading

Morristown Juniors’ All-Stars win game 1 of District Finals!

1-14_softball-bat_slideBehind a stellar, 7 inning complete game shutout and a timely 2-out, 2-run single, the Morristown Nationals All-Star softball team won game one of the 2 out of 3 District One Little League Championship on Monday night against the combined Rockaway/Parsippany team. The final score at Veteran’s Field in Morristown was 4-0 in favor of the home team, setting up the opportunity for Morristown to win the District crown tonight at Rockaway’s Donatoni Park at 6pm.

Pitcher Abby Edson was sharp all night long, striking out 5, allowing only 3 hits, with no walks and no runs while recording 9 ground ball outs. She kept Rockaway/Parsippany off balance throughout the game, snuffing out a last inning, 2 base runner threat with a pick-off at second base to end the game. Offensively, Morristown got things going in the bottom of the 3rd inning with a lead-of bunt single by Grace McKenna. After a stolen base and a passed ball, McKenna came in on a perfectly placed rbi single by Victoria Cote. In the bottom of the 4th, the Nationals came through again, this time in clutch fashion. After singles by Krista Vargas and Layla Moroses, followed by an error to advance the runners, Nina Lolli came up in need of a big hit and she did not disappoint, as she laced a 2-run single into right center field, increasing the lead to 3-0. Morristown tacked on their final run in the 5th inning as Cara Minter reached first on an error, moved to 3rd on a single by Chloe Saia, and came in to score on the next pitch on a double steal.

Morristown managed 6 hits of their own with Moroses leading the way with 2 hits in 2 at bats, including a double.

Hometown Olympian inspires Morristown students

via Daily Record – When Christina Epps was growing up, she had her eye on the WNBA. Basketball was definitely her first love. But she tried out for the track team at Frelinghuysen School even though “I hated running,” and “I didn’t want to run, ever.”

Already a basketball and volleyball player, Epps became a jumper as a junior at Morristown High School. This summer, she was part of Team USA’s triple jump trio at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Wearing her United States warmup uniform, Epps spoke with elementary students at Alfred Vail and Alexander Hamilton Schools, as well as at Frelinghuysen on Friday. Epps stressed the importance of hard work and dedication, as well as good nutrition. She told the middle-school students “about my challenges, what a lack of hard work didn’t get me,” and encouraged the youngest kids to “get out and play.”
