Our Green West Orange is joining the community of West Orange and and the Nikhil Badlani Foundation as it works to promote safety. Nationwide in 2016, 37,461 people died in motor vehicle crashes and an estimated 4.6 people were injured. Fatalities increased by 5.6% from 2015. This is a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades!! As of December 2017, 625 people died in New Jersey in motor vehicle crashes, an increase of 4% from 2016. These are deaths and injuries that can be prevented.

Nikhil Badlani Foundation is dedicated to saving lives and reducing the number of injuries on our roads through traffic safety education. Please join me at the 8th Annual STOP For Nikhil Run/Walk on September 16, 2018, to support their efforts to make our roads safer.

The foundation was established in July 2011 to honor the memory of 11-year-old Nikhil Badlani who died in a car crash on June 2011, when a driver ran a STOP sign.

In addition to advocating for traffic safety, the foundation helps children pursue their passion for music and academics by providing individualized music lessons and scholarships.

We hope you will join Our Green West Orange on Sunday, September 16, 2018 to support the Foundation 's mission to prevent crashes and save lives. Be sure to stop by OGWO 's activity tent, too.
