In October, we wear pink.
Fighting breast cancer means so much to us here at Little Hoboken. As you all know by now, this is our third year joining forces with Nathalie Crews-Vargo, a member of our team, and more importantly, our friend. She battled breast cancer, successfully kicked its ass while holding down a full-time job, being a wife and mother to two young boys, and crusading for breast cancer nonstop! To say she's tough is an understatement. This month marks her third year cancer and chemo free!
Nathalie and Little Hoboken is once again working to fundraise for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Jersey City. And on October 12 at 12:00 PM, the City of Hoboken joins us, by raising our LH Fight Like a Mother flag and declaring October "Breast Cancer Awareness Month." Special thanks to Councilwoman Emily Jabbour for sponsoring the resolution before City Council for the second year in a row.
Last year, we were unable to walk due to COVID-19, but we walked and listened to Nathalie's moving speech prior to the walk, but it's back and we hope you'll walk too! Even with a global pandemic, last year we exceeded the previous year's fundraising efforts and this year, we want to hit a minimum of $8,000. If you would like make a contribution directly to our team's goal click here.
