On Saturday, April 2nd over 500 men, women and children from our local communities will join together at Liberty State Park to support mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and family members whose lives have been impacted by ovarian cancer; and you can help.
Spring into Action and Celebrate the end of Winter with the NOCC! The 5K Run (USTA certified) or Walk route at Liberty State Park follows the water and offers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. For those traveling from New York City to the event, it is a 10-minute ferry ride to Liberty State Park via the Liberty Landing Ferry. Ferries depart from the World Financial Center Terminal on Vesey Street in Lower Manhattan.
