Drivers Help Make Strides Against Cancer


A total of $1,497 was raised for the American Cancer Society at Meadowlands Racetrack's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser on Friday, October 29


Track photographer Michael Lisa and his wife, Annette, a cancer survivor, organized the fundraiser, which included a silent auction of autographed pink whips used by the Meadowlands drivers in a special race.

Kelly Ford, wife of veteran Meadowlands trainer Mark Ford, donated the whips for the Lisa Photo Stride For The Cure Race.

The winner of the race was the horse wearing the pink saddlecloth, No. 7, Sectionline Barack, who was driven to victory by Jim Meittinis.

Michael Lisa, the recipient of numerous national and international photo awards, created special coffee mugs, shirts and custom racing images that were sold at the track that evening. Both natives of Hoboken, Michael and Annette Lisa currently reside in Montville, NJ.
