LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Kiwanis Club of Livingston has partnered with the West Essex YMCA to host an outdoor community event to benefit Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s annual Cycle for Survival on Saturday, May 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. under the tent on the front lawn of the West Essex YMCA at 321 South Livingston Avenue.

Many Livingston residents and organizations support life-saving cancer research that this locally founded charity has funded each year by participating in the in-person rides sponsored by Cycle for Survival at the Summit Equinox

Although the in-person event has been canceled again this year due to the pandemic, a virtual ride scheduled for May 15 will coincide with the event at the West Essex YMCA.
