Hi! My name is Laurane (everyone calls me Lar). I am 58 years young and am a resident of Northfield, NJ. I grew up in Camden, NJ and at the age of 20, moved to the place that I love and where I spent all of my weekends, the shore. In the winter, I would spend my weekends with my college friends in the Poconos.
I have 3 wonderful children, Jason, Steve and Sarah. Any chance I get, I am heading to the Poconos to snowboard. During the summer I like to mountain bike and participate in the Warrier Dash and Inflatable 5K, to help with one of my favorite charities, St. Jude.
I am a paralegal with the law firm of Weiss & Paarz, P.C., who represent plaintiffs who are permanently injured through medical malpractice. I have been with the firm for almost 9 years. I was recruited into the MAP Rogue Adventure by one of our attorneys and friend, Julie Nugent, Esq. When I heard this would benefit our military, I wanted to jump on board (or raft) so that I could help those who have defended our nation without hesitation. I am looking forward to this trip and to meeting new friends!
Rowing Team Dates:
August 6 2014 -August 10th, 2016
The Military Assistance Project Team is Rowing the Rogue River on a Charity Paddle, dedicated to raising funds to provide legal and housing services to Philadelphia veterans and military personnel.
Purpose for Rowing:
When I heard about this from <fellow rower> Julie Nugent, I was happy to be a part of something that would be for our military. I have always wanted to white water raft and visit Oregon.
