By Edward Kensik It was definitely a bittersweet day on April 29 for Cresskill hurler Elizabeth Pascetta. It was a feeling of elation for Pascetta who would strikeout her 500th batter, but the Cresskill Lady Cougars lost 11-1 at Midland Park. Actually she did not even know that she had reached the mark until after the game. “I was so excited and I didn’t even realize it,” said Pascetta. “It was a little disappointing that we lost.” The 500th strikeout was one of the marks for the senior pitcher’s four years at the school as the starting pitcher that has helped the squad in the Bergen County Scholastic League Olympic division and now the North Jersey Interscholastic Conference Patriot division. The most strikeouts in a game for the senior came last season against Hawthorne Christian where she fanned 18 batters in eight innings. She also struck out 15 in seven innings against Leonia as a sophomore. The most for this season is 10 against Bogota on April 27, the game before her 500th strikeout against Midland Park. For this season as a senior she has been called more upon as a leader with a young team. In the four years at Cresskill, the senior said that her best pitch is a curveball. “I like to work the plate a little and I’m looking to get the batter to swing and miss,” said Pascetta who added that she likes to work the plate inside and outside. “With the curveball the batter leans over for it and then I throw the next pitch inside to keep them off-balance.” She added that she likes to use her screwball as another effective pitch. She also throws a fastball, changeup, drop and riser. For next fall she will be attending Seton Hall University with her twin sister, Katherine, who is the first baseman on the Cougars. In terms of this year Cresskill was 9-8 just before the state tournament cutoff, May 13, and in good shape to make it. She remembers vividly the 6-3 loss at the hands of Wood-Ridge in the Group 1 North 1 state sectional semi-final. Wood-Ridge would go on and win the state section. She thinks that despite the team being young and inexperienced in the varsity, she believes that the Cougars will be a team to be reckoned with when it comes to the state tournament.

By Dennis Wilson Gibson is a success story produced the old-fashioned way — by improving his skills on the field of competition in three sports. His stellar play anchored the Maroons defense through three-lead changes as Ridgewood rallied from a 3-2 deficit early on to capture their second Bergen County Boys Lacrosse Tournament with a 9-6 victory over the Ironmen of Don Bosco Prep. A team-leader who served as co-captain of both the lacrosse and football teams, his LAX prowess was cultivated from techniques and skills he accumulated as a two-way standout on the gridiron. Gibson both powered his way to lead the Maroon’s in rushing from his fullback slot and topped the squad in tackles filling the gaps as a linebacker. Between the fall and spring campaigns, Gibson developed his mobility and agility as an aggressive wrestler. Academically, Gibson is a standout in the classroom and will continue his student/athlete career at Wesleyan University, competing in the prestigious New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), an NCAA Division III conference.

COACH OF THE MONTH

Zisa Hoping to Build a Powerhouse in Fair Lawn Photos by Edward Kensik.

Fair Lawn Volleyball head coach Peter Zisa.

By Edward Kensik Peter Zisa gave a speech after a two-straight game match victory at Passaic Valley in the middle of May. The victory raised Fair Lawn boys volleyball team’s record to 22-1. But the season was going to turn into high gear for the rest of the 2011 season with a quad match against powerhouses like St. Joseph’s of Metuchen, Don Bosco and J. P. Stevens. “If we want to be the last team standing, these are the teams that we are going to have beat,” said Zisa whose team is also part of the Super 6 Showcase in mid-May that includes some of the best teams in the state of New Jersey. The lone loss for the Cutters came against Hillsborough on April 28. “We learned that any team is beatable if the right game plan is implemented,” said Zisa who took some of the blame for the loss. Zisa has not only made the Fair Lawn boys volleyball a team to be reckoned with, but has made the Cutters girls volleyball team a force on the court as well. During his five years as head coach for both teams, he has a state group championship for the girls in 2007 and a state sectional championship for the boys last

season. “That year we had a great run in the state when we were not getting any respect,” said Zisa about the girls whose team had always stumbled against the top powerhouses like Old Tappan, Demarest and Ramapo. For the boys season though he does not want to stop and lose the final game. And for the boys he sees progression as the Cutters move up the state hill. “Hopefully we can improve on that,” said Zisa who wants to be in the same words as the likes of St. Joseph of Metuchen and Southern. “I don’t want us to be just some program.” He said that part of his goal is to start evening the power that currently is being held by Central New Jersey high schools in the sport. “My goal is to earn respect for the Northern New Jersey volleyball,” said Zisa. Since he coaches both teams, he knows the differences in the two games. “For the girls you are looking for more defense because the rallies are longer,” said Zisa. “The boys have a more offensive game. The importance is a faster game with the offense and the middle hitters.” He also said there is a difference in the boys and girls when it comes to sports. “The competitiveness of

the boys is higher than the girls,” said Zisa. “They (girls) don’t live or die by wins or loses. The girls are more fragile. You want be firm but also supportive.” Coming into the 2011 season Zisa had a 100-25 record and was 58-7 the last two seasons for the Fair Lawn boys. From that 2010 state sectional title team, Fair Lawn graduated some top players, but Zisa and the Cutters have two All-State players back this season in senior outside hitter Dan Nugent and senior libero Oren Zyndorf. In addition to a run in the states, Fair Lawn boys are the top seed and in the semi-finals of the Bergen County Tournament and are also looking to win a Big North league championship. For Zisa his way of life changed midway through his high school career. He originally played baseball while at Hackensack High School for his first two years at the school. But after a disagreement with a baseball coach, he decided to change sports as a junior and opted for boys volleyball where he was a first team All-State player as a senior. He would go on and play club volleyball while at Rutgers University and the rest as they say is history.

Maroons Pull Away in Fourth Quarter to Claim Second Bergen LAX Crown By Dennis Wilson After three lead changes and the contest deadlocked at 44, Ridgewood took control in the fourth quarter to defeat Don Bosco Prep 9-6 in the 7th Annual Bergen County Boys Lacrosse Tournament on Sunday (May 15) in Mahwah. The victory raised the Maroons overall record to 12-4 and was their second BCT title, having toppled the Ironmen 8-4 in the 2008 title match. Connor O’Shea capped off a three-goal run down the stretch for the Maroons when he tickled the back of the DBP goal with 8:09 remaining. O’Shea

started the game-winning surge with 18 seconds left in the third quarter off a feed from Garcia Logan who sandwiched a goal between O’Shea’s scores. Senior Vann Jorgensen completed a hat trick effort and senior defender Tripp Tedesco tallied the final goal with 22 ticks remaining on the game clock. Goalie Noah Pounds was credited with 11 saves. Anthony Disanzo and Frank Gaul turned in hat trick performances to propel the Ironmen to a 15-4 romp over Mahwah in the semifinals. Eight DBP laxmen scored while Matt King distributed a game-high four

Senior Kelci Smesko fueled the attack, netting seven goals as she the tied the Lady Maroons’ career scoring mark originally set by Leigh Jester in 2003. The

win was the 55th straight “W” for Ridgewood against Bergen County teams and continued their dominance of the BCT competition with their seventh straight success.

With Jessica Miller netting three of her game total of five goals, the

Lady Maroons turned on the attack mode as senior captain Samantha Giordano distributed four of her six assists to ignite Ridgewood up front. Suspense was lacking in the semifinals as IHA breezed to a 22-11 conquest of Indian Hills while Ridgewood trounced Mahwah 20-8. After suffering its first setback of the season on Saturday, a 19-11 loss to St. Anthony (NY), the No. 1 seeded Lady Maroons

Lavender, Wilmmershoff Ignite Owls Blue Eagles in Record-Setting Score 3-Peat as By Dennis Wilson BC Golf Champions Cailyn Lavender plated six teammates and Kelsey Wilmmershoff legged out a pair of three-bagger to knock in five runs as the duo highlighted Park Ridge’s 18-16 victory over Northern Valley/Old Tappan in the preliminary round of the Bergen County Softball Tournament in the highest scoring game in tourney history. Combined, the teams connected for 31 hits that included a trio of triples and seven doubles. In contrast, the remainder of the preliminary round was geared to pitching as one-hitters were tossed by Samantha Buse (Paramus Catholic), Ashley DeYoung (Indian Hills), Kelley Hage (Immaculate Conception/Lodi), Nicole Hroncich (Ridgewood) and

Julie Sosnicki (Rutherford). In the quarterfinals, DeYoung went the distance to up her record to 19-2 as Indian Hills rallied from a 2-0 deficit after three innings to defeat Ramsey 3-2. Steph Thomas fired a four-hit shut out as IHA eliminated Ramapo 2-0 while Paramus rolled to a 9-1 conquest of Ridgewood behind a four-hitter thrown by Tori Feorenzo while Stephanie Huang captured the tourney spotlight, going 4 for 4 that included two triples and a round-tripper. Brittany Mangen homered as the Lady Paladins defeated Immaculate Conception/Lodi to complete the field for the semifinals. Round-trippers off the bats of Fran D’Amato (Immaculate Conception/Lodi), Paige Goldsack (Rutherford), Huang

(Paramus) and Victoria Vergona (Paramus) and a pair of nohitters tossed by Ridgewood’s Hroncich and Ramsey’s Ally Menda highlighted the prequarterfinals. Glen Rock’s Kelly Dowell earned her100th career coaching victory when the Lady Panthers defeated Garfield 41. She is in her seventh season at the helm. Reaching the century level in career hits was Immaculate Heart Academy’s Carly Picinich. The junior singled in the fi rst inning to record her 100th safety and fi nished the 8-0 victory over Park Ridge with 102 hits after going 3 for 4.

Greenwald, Vorvolakos Re-Write Power Records in BCT By Dennis Wilson Power was on display to start the 2011 Bergen County Baseball Tournament when Waldwick pulled out a 14-12 victory over Westwood in the opening preliminary round. Westwood’s Tom Vorvolakos played a part in two of three tourney firsts as he became the first player to go deep twice in one inning, blasting a pair of roundtrippers and teamed up with Waldwick’s Eric Greenwald to be the clear the bases with grand slam blasts. Greenwald’s homer became the first-ever walk-off grand slam in the BCT record books. A similar performance highlighted the first-round of the Passaic County Tournament when DePaul’s Sean Jones plated eight runs in the Spartans 15-11 triumph over Hawthorne. The junior outfielder He circled the bases with the sacks filled

for an inside-the-park grand slam in the top of the seventh to produce the game-winning runs. The gender barrier was also broken in the BCT in the prequarterfinals when Abbey Fallon was inserted into the Northern Valley/Old Tappan lineup as a pinch runner to become the first female to appear in the BCT. Highlighting the power in the pre-quarterfinals were home run launches by Steve Calvo (St. Joseph Regional/ Montvale), Mike Mecca (Don Bosco Prep), Frank Paleno (Ridgewood), Joe Scaglione (Ramapo), Dale Veselsky (Northern Valley/Old Tappan) and Andrew Warner (Glen Rock). Dumont’s Mike Arnold, a senior third sacker, and Paramus’ Nick Henriques reached the century level in career hits.

TRIATHLONS – CAITLIN BEGG

Caitlin Begg competing at the West Point Triathlon this past summer.

DO

By Dan Cappello You won’t find Caitlin Begg on the lacrosse field this spring for Glen Rock High School. She left the team at the end of last season, her sophomore year, despite being a two year varsity player. You also won’t find the 16-year-old stepping up to the plate in a softball game, or lining up for a hurdles race in a track meet.

Instead, Begg competes in one of the most grueling of endurance sports—Triathlons. “At my school there aren’t people like me,” says Begg, who raced in her first triathlon event at West Point when she was just eight years old. “It’s hard for people to understand why I do it.” To date, she has completed

three half-Ironmans—a punishing 70.3 mile swimming/cycling/running competition—the first of which she completed at age 14, becoming the youngest person at the time to accomplish the feat. She competes in triathlons all year, devoting herself to the sport despite it not being acknowledged by high schools or even the NCAA. But

“I think that being a triathlete in school is a bit different because we don’t have a team. With lacrosse I went to tournaments and everyone was there and could see me. But at triathlons I was the youngest and there wasn’t a sense of community amongst the athletes.” page 18

Begg hopes she can change all that by leading the way for a new generation of young triathletes who are quickly making triathlon racing one of the fastest growing sports in the world. “I think that being a triathlete in school is a bit different because we don’t have a team,” says the Glen Rock junior, who’s also the editor of the school newspaper. “With lacrosse I went to tournaments and everyone was there and could see me. But at triathlons I was the youngest and there wasn’t a sense of community amongst the athletes. I wanted to find a editor@sportsfitnesswellness.com

The website, YoungTri.com, launched in January, and currently has members from 38 states and seven countries with six professional sponsors. On Twitter, YoungTri has nearly a thousand followers, and world class triathletes contribute to the site, making it the most dynamic youth triathlon organization around. “I just wanted to get the few friends and acquaintances that I had in triathlons and unite them,” says Begg, who manages to run this fast growing site while also managing her school work and twohour-a-day training schedule. “Right now the youth in triathlon is the fastest growing demographic in the sport, so I want this to be a go-to resource for all the young people in the sport.” Begg’s passion for triath-

TRIATHLONS – CAITLIN BEGG

“I know right now, along with some of my high school friends from the site [youngtri.com], we are the exception not the rule.

I think mediums like YoungTri can help to make this a high school sport like swimming or like track.” lons stems from her admiration for her father, Tom Begg, who’s completed five Ironman races, including two Ironmans in Kona, Hawaii—the most challenging triathlon event in the world. A full Ironman race is 140.6 miles long, broken down into a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a marathon (26.2 mile run). Tom Begg is also one of the co-founders of the Glen Rock Triathlon Club. “He does it because he loves it,” Begg says about her father. “Seeing my dad and how he was able to do that has been an inspiration. He’s never been one to push me, but he has been very supportive about everything.”

Begg hopes that YoungTri will change the way triathlon racing is accepted as an amateur sport. There are no high school triathlon teams in New Jersey and currently the NCAA does not consider it a college-level sport, despite it being in the Olympics. But as the youth movement grows and triathlons become more prominent, Begg hopes that this neglect

for the sport will change. “I know right now, along with some of my high school friends from the site, we are the exception not the rule,” says Begg. “I think mediums like YoungTri can help to make this a high school sport like swimming or like track. I think that in order for it to become an NCAA sport it needs continued on page 20

“We are informing, engaging and connecting this international community of young triathletes.

I envision YoungTri becoming synonymous with the young triathlon movement.” to become more available at the high school level.” It is not surprising that Begg desires to compete in such an intense, individual endurance sport. From completing her first half-Ironman at 14 to forming an international organization uniting young triathletes, this young high school junior is embedded with an entrepreneurial spirit. Aside from her visions for the future of YoungTri and her goal of completing her first Ironman before she goes to college, Begg has a special place in her heart for a charity organization called Swim Across America; an organization dedicated to raising mon-

ey and awareness for cancer research. “I’ve been involved with Swim Across America since I was 8 years old,” Begg says. “I swim in memory of my grandfather who died of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This past year I wanted to do more for the organization so I started my own pool event called the North Jersey Pool Swim and it was held last July in Glen Rock.” Begg has raised over $60,000 for Swim Across America and plans to have another pool event for the organization this July in Glen Rock. YoungTri even donates a portion of their sponsorship proceeds to charity organization.

Registering for YoungTri.com is free and members can take advantage of the numerous articles, webinars and sponsor discounts that are offered. But most importantly, Begg wants members to build a community of young triathletes that will take the sport to a new level. “It’s a lot to manage but I have always had the proverbial entrepreneurial bug,” says Begg. “I’ve done this all by myself, but I do it because I love it.” “We are informing, engaging and connecting this international community of young triathletes,” she says. “I envision YoungTri becoming synonymous with the young triathlon movement.”

Training for Your First 5K By Dan Cappello

golf beus, but a better s-trainur recis. The ents of a tennis ve your ombine workout ket and est golf s.

The warming weather and the excitement of spring sports might be riling up your competitive spirit. But you might be thinking you’re too old to take up any sort of activity, or that your time has passed and it’s time to watch your kids live all the excitement. Nonsense. Two weeks ago I watched an 85 year old man complete a half-marathon. It is never too late to get off the bleachers of your son or daughter’s game and bring some competitive excitement to your life. And one of the best and easiest places to start is running. Every spring and summer, numerous towns in Bergen County hold charity 5K races. This is a great way to get involved in a community event, inspire some of your neighbors and get back into shape. Before you begin our training program, be sure that your running shoes fit you well. If you need new shoes, check out Road Runners in Paramus, or any other quality running shoe store. They will be sure to fit you to the right shoe, which can help prevent injury later. WEEK 1 Take it easy your first week. Start by running/walking for 30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; on Tuesdays and Thursdays just walk and let your muscles rest. • TIP: You need to maintain movement as much as possible. A rest day should never mean sit on the couch. You should stretch, walk or cross-

train with exercises like yoga or swimming. Allow your muscles in your legs to adjust to the new stress of running and build endurance in your lungs. On Saturday, push yourself. Run/Walk for 2 miles. Your body needs to begin adjusting the length of a 5K. WEEK 2 Repeat step one, except on Saturday increase your distance by half-a-mile. • TIP: Pick a set time to train every day. Whether it is 6:00am in the morning before work or 8:00pm at night, developing a routine will help you stay focused and keep you from missing a workout. If you are afraid of missing your favorite television show because of your training, invest in a DVR. Works for me. WEEK 3 By now you should be able to run a 1K or more. Congrats! Now, increase your run time from 30 minutes to 45 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Saturday, add another half mile to your distance and keep pushing. If you feel fatigued or in pain after one of your training runs, take a day or two off to rest your muscles. You do not want to overwork yourself. • TIP: Set small milestones for yourself. Focusing on the actual distance of a 5K (3.1) when you can’t even run a mile may diminish your confidence. Start by trying to run 1 mile. Once you achieve that, reward yourself! Maybe a small sweet

treat or some new training clothes. Whatever you prefer.

to four miles. Training for four miles will make running the 5K much easier. • TIP: Set a goal right at the very beginning of your training. Locate an upcoming 5K in your area and set your sights on that. You can find out when your town or neighboring towns will be hosting a 5K by visiting this website: www. RunningInTheUSA.com.

WEEK 4 Continue with week 3 and working on stretching your muscles and staying hydrated. You are well on your way to achieving your goal. Continue to increase your running sessions each week by 5 minutes and increasing your distance total on Saturday until you get

RUNNER’S DIET

5 Foods That Should Be In Every Runner’s Diet By Dan Cappello If you’re not a runner then it’s easy to assume that all runners eat pasta and bread as the main source of their diet. Carb-loading is the term often used. But a good runner will have a variety of different foods in their diet, such as lean meats and green vegetables. Carb-loading is effective before a race, but not in a daily routine. A proper diet can help keep your muscles healthy and strong and be the best fuel source to prepare for your next race. If you are starting our 5K training program or beginning your own race training, be sure to incorporate these five foods in your diet.

TUNA Protein is the key to rebuilding muscle and healing. Tuna is a convenient snack that can be stored at home easily and made into different meals. Tuna sandwiches and salads are a great substitute for those bland turkey sandwiches and peanut butter and jelly.

BABY CARROTS Throw these in a Ziploc bag and take them to work. Vitamin A, fiber and low-fat beta carotene make baby carrotts a healthy alternative to potato chips. Runners will benefit from the nutrients and there convenience makes them hard to beat.

CHOCOLATE That’s right. Don’t think you have to cut out the sweets entirely. Try to eat dark chocolate, which is filled with antioxidants which helps reduce inflammation. The trick is to not over eat. A mere 3050 calories a day should satisfy your sweet tooth and give your body what it needs to keep on running.

Introducing Bergamonte™ With Outstanding Health Benefits*

OATMEAL A great, natural, unprocessed food, oatmeal is great to start your morning. Oatmeal is packed with protein, fiber and slow-releasing energy nutrients that are perfect for runners. Start your day off with this meal and you will see progress in your training in no time. ellness.com

BANANAS This is the easiest snack to enjoy on a daily basis. It’s already wrapped and ready to go anywhere. It replenishes your body’s potassium, which it loses through sweat. And it can also help prevent cramping. How can you beat that?

“After using Bergamonte for 30 days my blood testing numbers came back with amazing results!” D.Frazier

Mike Massenzio: Back to His Winning Ways Photo courtesy of Phil Ross.

Mike Massenzio stands over Nate Kittredge at Combat Zone 37 Contributed by Phil Ross, AEMMA & Kettlebells, Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ

April 29, 2011, SALEM, NH – Combat Zone 37. The CoMain Event of the evening was between former 2-time NJ State Wrestling Champion Mike Massenzio and Plymouth State’s most decorated wrestler, Nate Kittredge. Coming into the fight, Kittredge sported a 10-1 Professional MMA record. His lone loss was due to a disqualification. The former UFC Fighter, Mike Massenzio, has had a series of set backs. Coming off of his victorious UFC debut by submitting slugger Drew McFredries in the 1st round, Mike sustained several injuries during his training for his fight with CB Dollaway at UFC 92.

Despite the injuries, Mike took the fight and lost. After a 20 month layoff and three operations, Mike took a fight with the former WEC Light Heavyweight Champion, the hard hitting Brian Stann. Massenzio, ahead on points going into the third and final round, suffered a few heavy shots from Stann and was submitted with a triangle choke after he took Stann to the mat. Despite the fact that the bout earned the Fight of the Night Honors, Massenzio was dropped by the UFC. Massenzio, not one to take “No” for an answer rallied and embarked on his quest to get back in the UFC and become a World Champion. On April

29th, he defeated the very dangerous Nate “The Animal” Kittredge via TKO Strikes in Round 2. Mike displayed solid boxing, superior wrestling and Muay Thai skills as he struck, threw and took down Kittredge en route to his victory and raised his record to 12-4. Next up for Mike is a bout with the 12-1 Victor O’Donnell in Cage Fury Fighting Championships on June 10th in Atlantic City. This bout promises to be an explosive event. O’Donnell is known for his relentless attacks and heavy hands. For tickets for the bout, please call the American Eagle/Team Iron Horse MMA Training Center at 201.612.1429.

In addition to his Pro Fighting Career, Mike also owns and operates the American Eagle BJJ Academy located in HoHo-Kus, NJ. Mike moved his operations to Phil Ross’ American Eagle/Team Iron Horse MMA Training Center approximately a year and a half ago. At the recent NAGA World Grappling Championships, Mike’s students secured three 1st, one 2nd and one 3rd place finishes. Mike also coaches his Professional and Amateur Fighters from this location as well. For more information on BJJ, Wrestling Lessons or MMA, please visit www.teamironhorse.com or call the studio at 201.612.1429.

KAIYAPALOOZA A Fundraiser For The Girl Who Has Taught Us Anything Is Possible Contributed by Matt Sullivan

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ – Life lessons come from people of all shapes and sizes, and from all walks of life. Although Kaiya Barber is only six years old, and has never spoken, those around her learn something from her every day. The daughter of popular Ramapo High School math teacher and hockey coach Lee Barber, Kaiya hasn’t let cerebral palsy keep her from dispensing some valuable lessons of her own. Kaiya defied the predictions of the medical community when she rose from her wheelchair to take her first steps at the age of four. She now walks independently without the use of even a walker, and Barber and his wife, Jill, believe that Kaiya will soon begin speaking. “Kaiya has come so far and taught us so much about what is important in life,” wrote Bar-

ber on the event’s website, www. careforkaiya.com. “Our daughter keeps us grounded and reminds us how important it is to treasure every moment and to never give up. With every step that Kaiya takes, she defies the predictions of her doctors, and shows us anything is possible if you have determination, will and the support of loved ones.” Kaiya will feel the love from her extended family at the second annual Kaiyapalooza, a fundraiser for her medical care and various therapies, which will take place on Wednesday, May 25th, from 710 p.m. at Ramapo High School. Admission to Kaiyapalooza is $10 for adults and children, and includes food, and a performance by magician Will Fern. The success of the event relies heavily on the generosity of the community, and local businesses, and event sponsorships of $1,000 are being

sought, as are other donations and raffle prizes. All donations will be recognized in the event program, and sponsors will be included on the back of event t-shirts, which will be for sale. “Myself and numerous other former and present Ramapo students have dedicated ourselves to both spread awareness of the cause and to raise money to assist the Barber family with the financial burdens that coincide with the treatment and therapy,” said event coordinator Jeff Peters, a 2010 graduate of Ramapo High School and its hockey team. “To see coach Barber and his wife, Jill, with Kaiya is truly inspiring. The care and the love they show her is so heartwarming, that it’s a wonderful lesson for us all on how we should all live our lives.” Kaiyapalooza, along with its sister event, the Kaiya’s Cup (a hock-

ey game between Ramapo and its cross-town rival Indian Hills), have made a huge difference in Kaiya’s life. Even without spoken words, the Barbers say her reaction to what’s said shows Kaiya understands what’s being communicated to her and is unquestionably aware that this event is her special night. She’ll be surrounded by her extended family of guardian angels, who have embraced her cause as their own. “She knows Kaiyapalooza is all for her and she loves it,” said Barber. “The saying, ‘it takes a village’ to raise a child is so very true, and we thank all of you in advance for your love, support, prayers, and generosity.” Please contact 2010 Ramapo graduate Jeff Peters at jeff@care forkaiya.com or access www. careforkaiya.com for further information.
