Walk-a-Thon: The T.J. Martell Foundation, an organization that has raised more than $250 million for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research, is set to hold its 19th annual Walk-a-Thon and Family Fun Day in Madison on Sunday.
The foundation was started 38 years ago by Madison resident and music executive Tony Martell to fulfill a promise he made to his teenage son.
Organizers hope to draw 1,000 participants and raise $150,000 at this year's event. Registration begins at noon and the walk begins at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Madison Area YMCA. The 5K walk consists of a scenic tour through Madison and Drew University.
Marching Band Competition: The Madison High
School Marching Dodgers will host and compete against top area marching
bands on 1 p.m. Sunday at the high school, 170 Ridgedale Ave. Stay tuned for more information about the show.
Property Auction: A vacant, wooded residential lot owned by the Borough of Madison will be sold to the highest bidder at a public auction Thursday morning, with the minimum bid set at $250,000.
The borough is selling the property, 27 Belleau Ave., because officials determined it's not needed for public use. An appraisal said it appeared a single- or two-family home could be built on the 0.334-acre site. The auction is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday in the court room at borough hall, 50 Kings Road.
