Each year, Sid Jacobson JCC offers vital social service programs to thousands of Long Island residents in need.
Cancer touches many within our community without discrimination. When one family member is diagnosed, the whole family is affected. Now more than 11 years strong, the Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center strives to help cancer survivors and their families become stronger than cancer by providing holistic care including exercise, education, workshops and additional supportive services for participants and their families.
The JCC’s Stronger than Cancer 5k, to be held on Sunday, October 8, 2017, is poised to be our largest event yet! This event connects hundreds of participants, sponsors and donors who are passionate about supporting the JCC’s Cancer Wellness Center. Through your support, the JCC can continue offering programs free of cost to our program participants.
