Race for the Cure

Nearly all of us are related to or know someone who is affected by cancer. Those employed at Alpine Township think of fellow employee Julie Bacheller whenever the conversation comes up. Julie was diagnosed with breast cancer about two years ago. After a lumpectomy, chemetherapy, radiation treatments and many drug treatments, Julie is now cancer free. Julie, her family and friends prayerfully hope the cancer will not return .

This past weekend Julie participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. It is the is the world's largest series of 5K run/ walks. Since its origination in Dallas in 1983, the Komen Race for the Cure® Series has grown from one local race with 800 participants to an international series of 117 races with more than 1.3 million participants. As part of this worldwide effort, Julie raised $215 in donations from her friends and fellow employees this month. Julie has been employed by Alpine Township for sixteen years and is currently the Residential Assessor. We are all very proud of her positive attitude and the efforts she contributes to the Township and the community.
