Medford Lakes woman paddling up NJ coast for cancer

    It’s a 127-mile trip up the New Jersey coastline, but for Margo Pellegrino of Medford Lakes, every mile she paddles will be for a good cause.

    According to a report published on NJ.com and by the Associated Press, the Medford Lakes paddler is making her way up the New Jersey coastline to raise for cancer research.

    According to the report, Pellegrino set out early Monday from Cape May on her journey up the coast, with a scheduled arrival for Tuesday afternoon.

    The paddler has made trips similar to this one before, paddling from Miami up north to Maine.

    According to the story, she has embarked on her latest trip to help a friend whose child is suffering from neuroblastoma.
