    to helpbattlecancer

    By JULIE STIPEThe Princeton Sun

    Over the past four years, Rob-binsville resident Paula Lotitohas raised more than $10,000 tohelp end breast cancer. Thoughnot a survivor of the disease her-self, the cause is close to Lotitosheart.

    My best friend of 30 years wasdiagnosed with breast cancer,Lotito said.

    Lotitos friend Sharon wastreated successfully at first, andher cancer went into remission

    for four and a half years. Then,just six months before the fiveyear milestone after whichpoint most womens breast cancerdoes not return the cancer cameback.

    Within nine months she wasgone, Lotito said. I lost a hugechunk of me I will never getback.

    VICE CHAIRMAN Michael LaCount, Ph.D.


    CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD Dan McDonough, Jr.

    VICE CHAIRMAN Alan Bauer

    Were pretty sure that Repub-

    lican Party leaders took a

    close look at speeches before

    they were delivered at the recent con-

    vention. Which makes us wonder how

    Chris Christies remarks actually saw

    the light of day.

    Make no mistake, the governor de-livered a bang-up speech. He spoke of

    values, sacrifice and the future of the

    nation and his party. He had people

    cheering. If theres one thing Christie

    does well, its deliver a speech.

    But, in his remarks, that Romney

    guy seemed to be an afterthought. It

    took a long time for the governor to

    even mention the GOP nominee. There

    was a lot of stuff about Christie, his

    views and his vision, but not a lot

    about trying to get Mitt Romney elect-

    ed president in November.Christie took some heat for his re-

    marks the day after he delivered them.

    Were guessing the heat didnt bother

    him one bit.

    Christies blunt, tell-it-like-he-sees-it

    approach is one of the things people

    like about the guy. In an era when al-

    most every other politician tailors his

    or her speech to whomever they are

    speaking to, Christie never leaves a

    doubt in anyones mind about what he

    thinks. Its not always what people

    want to hear. But theres something to

    be said for a politician not worrying so

    much about being popular and just

    speaking his mind.

    The governors speech certainly was

    an accurate introduction to the rest of

    the nation. And it set him up well for a

    future presidential run perhaps asearly as 2016 should President Obama

    win re-election.

    Love him or hate him, Christie defi-

    nitely would be an interesting presi-

    dential candidate. No one will accuse

    him of pandering to special interests.

    No one will wonder where he stands on

    issues or what he would do if elected.

    In these days, where politicians

    promise one thing and deliver another,

    Christies openness and bluntness set

    him apart.

    in our opinion

    Hi, my name is ChrisGovernors convention address sets him up for a future presidential bid

    Christie in 2016?

    The governors speech at theRepublican National Convention lastweek was long on vision and short onpoliticking. That might not be great forMitt Romney, but it could serve Christiewell in four years.

    flooding damaged the building and left itwith mold and asbestos problems.

    Council members have celebrated thecondominium purchase as a way for thetownship to own its office space, ratherthan rent, and as a way to consolidate mu-nicipal offices onto one floor.

    But former councilwoman Sonja Waltercriticized the plan during the ordinancespublic hearing, saying it was unwise andwould increase the tax burden on already

    strapped residents.It just seems that were spending

    money hand over fist for this, Walter said.

    Council president Ron Witt said the planwill ultimately save the township money,as it will allow it to eventually pay off thespace and stop making rent payments.

    If you can own real estate, thats bet-ter, Witt said. Our lease payments havegotten out of hand.

    Walter also asked council whether theplan provided for the police department,which she said is outgrowing its presentbuilding in the municipal complex.

    Witt told Walter there is no plan to movethe police department as of right now.

    During the meeting, township council

    also unanimously approved the appoint-ment of Dennis Shennard to the councilseat vacated by Rich Levesque, who re-

    signed from council in July to move toHopewell with his family.Shennard has served on the township

    zoning board for the past five years, andthis year was Shennards second as chairof the board, although he said he resignedfrom the zoning board in order to fill theposition of temporary councilman.

    Shennards appointment to council willexpire in November.

    However, Shennard said he plans to runfor election to serve the remainder ofLevesques term, which expires Dec. 30,2015.

    SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2012 THE ROBBINSVILLE SUN 7 The Foundation of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence Inc. PRESENTS

    The loss of her closest frienddevastated Lotito, who couldntaccept that she was gone.

    To be honest, I was a completewreck, Lotito said. I was prettymuch non-functional.

    Two years after Sharon passedaway, Lotito saw a commercial forthe Susan G. Komen 3-Day, a 60-mile walk to raise funds forbreast cancer research that takesplace over the course of three

    days.I picked up the phone and saidI want to join, Lotito said.

    The walks are held in 14 differ-ent cities including Chicago,Boston, Atlanta, and San Diego during the summer and into thefall. For the event, participantsmust raise at least $2,300 for thecause to participate, and are re-sponsible for their own fundrais-ing.

    The fundraising sounds intimi-dating, Lotito said, but it has a

    way of working out.I have a neighbor who is a sur-

    vivor, Lotito said. She gives mefive dollars every year and says, Iwish I could give you more butthanks for walking for me.

    For her first walk, Lotito far ex-ceeded the fundraising minimumby raising $5,000 in just fourmonths by sending out letters.

    It was just like Christmasevery day, Lotito said. Peoplewill come through.

    But the best part of the experi-ence was the actual walk, whichconvinced Lotito that she had todo it again. Lotito has since par-ticipated in one 3-Day in Boston,two in Washington, D.C., and onein Tampa. The walk Lotito isdoing this October in Philadel-phia will be the fifth.

    I mustve been on a high afterthe first walk, Lotito said.There are no words to describeit.

    Participants must walk about

    20 miles per day, and they returneach night to a campground,where crew members have set upa dining tent, showers, and port-a-potties for the walkers. Walkerssleep two to a tent (appropriately

    colored pink), with each tent justlarge enough to hold two air mat-tresses.

    Sectioned-off tractor trailersform the showers at the camp-ground, with sinks outside. Be-cause there are so many partici-pants for each sink or shower (a 3-Day usually has between 1,500and 4,000 walkers, Lotito said),waiting in line to use the campsfacilities is a nightly ritual, and agood way to meet people, accord-ing to Lotito.

    The walk is about celebratingthose who have or had the dis-ease, Lotito said, and its alsoabout hearing others stories and

    connecting with them during thewalk.One evening after a day of

    walking, Lotito noticed a womanrubbing her hips, and asked thewoman if she was sore from thewalk.

    She said, I took a break fromchemo to do this walk, Lotito re-called. Theres nothing to say ex-cept you inspire me.

    The sense of community thewalk generates is a very specialthing, Lotito said. Whether the

    participants are survivors, arestill fighting the disease, or arewalking in support or memory ofsomeone else, the walk is emo-tional, full of fun times, newfriends, and difficult memories.

    Its exhausting, and its emo-tional, Lotito said.

    The walks also require morethan just walkers. Many supportthe cause by becoming crewmembers, who help cook andserve meals, set up stations for

    walkers to get water along theway, manage the campground,load and unload walkers gearand tent, direct traffic and manyother necessary jobs.

    On Sunday afternoon, the thirdday of walking, participants fin-ish the walk at the site of the clos-ing ceremony, which is the climaxof the event. One of most touch-ing parts about finishing thewalk, Lotito said, is that the lastwalker to finish is celebrated, notthe first.

    They salute the last walker;they make an announcement,Lotito said.

    The last walker also gets tolower the Susan G. Komen flag,and is presented with flowers as

    the closing ceremonies begin.At the opening and closing cer-

    emonies, some walkers are select-ed to carry flags representing theway breast cancer affected them.One flag says wife, one daughter,one grandmother, one coworker.Lotito had hoped to get the flag la-beled my friend, and when shefound she was going to get tocarry a flag, she was overjoyed.

    Unfortunately, Lotito said, shesomehow ended up with the mypartner flag. Disappointed, Loti-to decided to carry the flag in thisyears Philadelphia walk anyway.

    I turned it around, and saidSharon was my biggest partner in

    crime, Lotito said. I said whatthe heck. I think its funny. Imvery bummed, but maybe nextyear.

    Despite the heat, rain, blistersand exhaustion that are often apart of a 3-Day, Lotito recom-mends that everybody try it once,or at least watch the closing cere-monies.

    This is something I am so pas-sionate about, Lotito said. Themore people come out and seethis the more they will under-

    stand how important this is.Someday there will be a worldwithout cancer.
