#HipNJ Walks to Fight Alzheimer’s

Did you know that over 500,000 people in New Jersey are affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia, including 175,000 individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers? This scary fact is why we urge all of our #Hippers to support the Alzheimer’s New Jersey Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s!

This series of four walks throughout the Garden State is the charity’s largest fundraising event. The first Walk to Fight Alzheimer’s raised over $750,000 in 2016, with 100% of walk donations supporting ANJ programs and services such as personal and confidential assistance, guidance, relief from caregiving, emotional support and education, safety awareness, and clinical trial opportunities.

Jane Randall on Jersreport.com

Jane Randall, former America’s Next Top Model contestant and Princeton graduate, sat with #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino to discuss her latest NJ adventure.

Randall went to Princeton as a lacrosse goalie, but by the end of her sophomore year, she ended up on reality television. “I asked my roommate to take a headshot of me and we sent it in. I ended up being selected by Tyra to be on the show,” she says.

Jersreport.com is Randall’s newest project. It is a website featuring headlines from across the state. “My experience on Top Model gave me good insight into the power of the editor,” she says.

“I think it’s a great resource for people to see and get a sense of what people are talking about,” she says. Check out the site here.
