For two decades, Komen North Jersey has fought and continues to fight for equal health care and resources for all. Funds raised are given to local non-profit organizations that provide critical breast health programs for the Garden State’s most vulnerable population.

To help commemorate this amazing feat, #HipNJ produced a series of testimonial videos starring those who built Komen North Jersey into the success it is today, including its co-founders Deborah Q. Belfatto, Kathy Hubert-McKenna and Lisa Marie Herschel.  Further, HipNewJersey.com’s Lisa Marie Latino broadcasted live on Facebook from numourous Komen NNJ events, including their annual Pink Tie Party, Survivor’s Fashion Show and Race for the Cure.

Sports Betting Hits New Jersey

Sports Betting Hits New Jersey

Until now, sports betting has been illegal to the public. The only place people could bet on sports were illegal bookies in Las Vegas.

Recently, Gov. Phill Murphy signed off on sports betting on Monday, June 12, 2018. People from New Jersey can now participate in sports betting in selected racetracks and in casinos! New Jersey will officially be the second LEGAL state to allow sports betting.

Allowing sports betting to be available in New Jersey can be very beneficial to people all over. It will create around 50 to 120 new job opportunities in one town alone!

#HipNJ Celebrates 20 Years of Komen North Jersey: Nancy Sumas

After finding out about her breast cancer diagnosis, Nancy Sumas turned to her friend and fellow cancer survivor, Deb Belfatto. Although Nancy and Deb had been friends for years, Deb sharing her personal journey greatly impacted Nancy. Their friendship grew even stronger as Deb helped Nancy through her treatment.

Throughout Nancy’s involvement over the past two decades– personally and through Wakefern, the family business– she has seen the changes that have occurred within the breast cancer community here in the Garden State. The accomplishments of Susan G. Komen North Jersey gives Nancy hope for the future of the fight against breast cancer.
