Cycle for Survival is the annual, indoor, relay-style, cycling event that raises money for research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). It will take place here on the Island, February 4 at the Equinox Gym on Glen Cove Road in Greenvale and you don’t have to be a member at Equinox to participate. Three things make Cycle for Survival unique.
First and foremost, Cycle is the only event of its kind that exclusively supports research on rare forms of cancer. Most people don’t realize that all pediatric cancers, pancreatic, ovarian, cervical, brain, head, neck, Leukemia and Lymphoma as well as metastatic melanoma and stomach cancer fall under the very wide umbrella referred to as “rare” cancers. The definition of a “rare “ cancer is one with fewer than 200,000 affected individuals in the United States, however as an aggregate more than 50 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. have one of these “rare” forms. Representatives of Cycle for Survival note that research on rare cancers is often drastically under funded and in general there are fewer treatment options for these patients because funding for drug trials often lags behind more commercially viable drugs.
For nearly a quarter of a century, Long Island local runners, walkers and families have known that there’s no better way to celebrate the Holiday season than by being part of the fun at the Ho Ho Ho Holiday 5-Kilometer Run.

When cold weather sets in, bears are not the only ones that go into hibernation. Many humans tend to hunker down and tuck in for the long winter. Oyster Bay Town Councilman Joseph D.

For Town of Oyster Bay residents, the outdoor ice skating season will start the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 25, at the Marjorie R. Post (Massapequa) and Syosset-Woodbury Community Park ice rinks.
