Memorial 5th Annual 5K and Concert for Cancer

Captain Mark Lee

Please join The American Cancer Fund at its 5th Annual Memorial Sanctioned Grand Prix 5k Run/1 mile Walk for 9/11 First Responder, Jersey City Fire Captain Mark Lee at Liberty State Park. This is a fantastic course for both runners and walkers in a beautiful park along the Hudson River featuring magnificent views of NYC and The Statue of Liberty.

We will be hosting a NJ Track and Field Grand Prix 5k race for the runners and a 1-mile survivors walk for those that don’t want to run but still support cancer victims and survivors. Following the races, we’ll have a Concert performance from The BStreetBand, the longest running Bruce Springsteen Tribute band, as well as health and wellness vendors, food trucks and more. Everyone gets a rose for Mother’s Day.

Fire Capt. Mark Lee
9/11 First Responder and Jersey City Fire Dept. Engine Co. 10- Group C
Captain Lee was Jersey City firefighter who worked in the recovery efforts at Ground Zero after the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. Despite his deteriorating health, Lee continued to fight major fires in Jersey City before ultimately succumbing to respiratory complications in 2013. He left behind the legacy of a man devoted to his community, particularly those in need. Please help us to honor his life by supporting the 5th Annual Memorial 5K Race/1 Mile Walk in honor of Fire Captain Mark Lee and Concert.
