Sid Jacobson JCC rocks the ride at SoulCycle Roslyn

The Island Now

Sid Jacobson JCC’s New Leadership Group is proud to announce the annual Rock the Ride event will be held on Sunday, June 2, 6:15 p.m. at SoulCycle Roslyn, followed by dinner at 388 Restaurant. The cycling event will raise funds to support the JCC’s Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center.

When individuals register for a bike at Rock the Ride, they commit to fundraising for NMCWC. Last year’s cycling event raised over $60,000. Co-Chairs for Rock the Ride include Jaclyn Edelstein, Dara Gelb, Jamie Kwiat, Hilary Levine, Rachel Poplock, Jen Saler, Andrea Stein and Rachel Stier.

“Each year I am thankful for the New Leadership Group’s hard work and dedication to this event to support people that have cancer and their families,” says Randy Hight, director, Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center. “The services that the Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center provides truly make a difference in these people’s lives. The participants of this fundraising event are our angels and partners in supporting those in our community who need it most.”

Cancer touches many families within our community without discrimination. When one family member is diagnosed, everyone is affected. For more than a decade, Sid Jacobson JCC’s Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center has met the need for holistic care for the entire family. The NMCWC’s We’ve Got Your Back — Family Cancer Support program focuses specifically on providing services to the children of families with a parent or sibling undergoing cancer treatment.
