Metuchen School Raises $800 To Fight Breast Cancer

METUCHEN — The students, parents and faculty of Campbell Elementary School in Metuchen joined together on Sunday, June 2, to raise $800 for the 12th Annual Michelle Offsie Memorial Walk to Cure Breast Cancer.

The Metuchen school district’s team participated in the walk, held at  the Community Campus (JCC/YMCA) on Oaktree Road in Edison, for the first time this year. Those who were unable to walk were encouraged to make a donation in honor of the team. The Campbell Elementary School team leaders were Susan Lass and Hope Serratelli.

Then-13-year-old Janna Zuckerman founded the walk to memorialize Michelle Offsie, a former Edison Township resident who died of breast cancer at a young age. Since then, the Metuchen/Edison community has come together to raise more than $1 million to help fund the breast cancer research, treatment and awareness programs of the City of Hope.

The $800 Campbell Elementary School raised came from the sale of $1 pink ribbons which were displayed on a prominent wall at the school as well as individual donations. A gift basket of high end beauty products was raffled off to the school staff as well.
Campbell Elementary School was the highest fundraiser in the district. As a result of their efforts, the City of Hope is donating a Google Chromebook computer to the school as a “thank you” for all of their support.
