Memorial Sloan-Kettering Rock & Run on the River, Celebrating Life Beyond Cancer

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will present its second annual Rock & Run on the River on June 8, 2008. This one-day event will feature a 5K run/walk followed by a food and entertainment festival on Hudson River Park’s Pier 84. Dan Abrams, MSNBC host and chief legal correspondent for NBC News, will host.

After the run/walk, attendees can enjoy:

•    A specially designed Survivors’ Area, where cancer survivors and their families can gather to celebrate and reflect together

•    Distinctive dishes prepared by some of New York’s top restaurants

•    Musical performances by exciting New York talent

•    Yoga, fitness classes, and massages in the Cool-Down Lounge

•    Hands-on, family-friendly activities in the Kids’ Zone


All participants will receive a Rock & Run T-shirt designed by honorary event co-chair, acclaimed fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo.

The event is designed to raise awareness and funds for MSKCC’s Cancer Survivorship Initiative. With more men, women, and children living beyond cancer than ever before, this pioneering initiative serves as a national and international model for programs designed to meet survivors’ special needs.

All proceeds from Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Rock and Run on the River will benefit the Center’s Survivorship Initiative.
