Date & Time
Sid Jacobson JCC (SJJCC), the only full-service JCC on Long Island’s North Shore, is excited to announce this year’s annual Stonger Than Cancer 5K will be held on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at 9:30 am at the JCC in East Hills. All members of the community are invited to this family-friendly event where they can walk or run the JCC’s USATF certified course in East Hills.
Proceeds from the annual event will go to SJJCC’s Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center (NMCWC), which provides much-needed programming to those living with cancer throughout all stages from treatment to survivorship.
This year’s event will honor SJJCC board member Harvey Marx, whose wife Nancy passed away in November 2013 after battling Glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, for five months. To honor Nancy, and with the support of friends and family, Marx proudly named SJJCC’s Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center in 2014 to offer financial and emotional support to others facing cancer. In the years since, NMCWC has grown to help nearly 1,000 individuals and their families face cancer with a community by their side.
