Mission Possible-Warriors

Sisters Network of Central New Jersey (SNCNJ) expands their vision to serve and support GirlTrek.  They are leading by example by supporting, inspiring, and encouraging Black women to live their lives healthier and inspiring healthier communities by walking.

SNCNJ has joined Mission Possible Somerset GirlTrek Team, spearheaded by Ms. Debe Davis, a Health and Wellness Professional.  SNCNJ is the Mission Possible-Warriors and the team is spearheaded by Ms. Valerie Mathis-Leake, a breast cancer survivor. 

SNCNJ look to ensure that women impacted by breast cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened their bodies by action and are sustained by community support.  Valerie Mathis-Leake being a breast cancer survivor,  walks daily because being active and walking is thought to reduce cancer risk largely by improving energy metabolism and reducing circulating concentrations of estrogen, insulin, and insulin-like growth factors. 

Mission Possible-Warriors invite all women of color to join the team.   We walk 3 or 5 miles every Saturday morning at 7:00 AM in Johnson Park, 1281 River Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.  To join,  please contact Valerie Mathis-Leake at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
