Cancer walkathon in Massapequa Sunday

The Long Island League to Abolish Cancer will hold its inaugural “Step Up to Stamp-Out Cancer” walkathon Sunday at Marjorie R. Post Community Park in Massapequa.

Organizers say the event will raise funds to support cutting-edge cancer research projects in the New York Metropolitan area.

More than 95 percent of money received by the Plainview-based charity, it says, goes directly to research grants for specific pieces of laboratory equipment at hospitals including Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Stony Brook.

The walk will begin at 10:45 a.m. at the town park at Unqua and Merrick roads. Preregistration is $25, and $30 that day.
