Earlier this week, New York Islanders captain Anders Lee teased the date and location for the next Kancer Jam fundraising event. We now know it will take place on Saturday, September 16th, on the outdoor recreation rink at the Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow.
"I am thrilled and honored to bring my Kancer Jam event home to Long Island! On Saturday afternoon, September 16th, 2023, at the Northwell Health Ice Center, please join my teammates and other celebrity friends as we gather to raise money for families on and around Long Island that have been affected by a kancer diagnosis.""- Anders Lee
Lee, a King Clancy award finalist this past June for his leadership qualities on and off the ice, has been part of Jam Kancer in the Kan initiatives for the last seven years. In that time, his events raised over $300,000 for cancer research and established the Fenov Memorial Scholarship, named after Fenov Pierre-Louis, the teenage boy that inspired Lee and many others as he battled Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Fenov passed away in 2018.
On an annual basis, Lee and the foundation awards "Fenov Scholarships" to graduating high school seniors continuing on to college who have "provided help and sympathy" to someone with "kancer."
Anders Lee Kancer Jam IV will give Islanders fans and those that want to help raise money for this great cause a chance to compete side-by-side with Lee's teammates. Each team will consist of two participants. Only 32 team slots are available, with each team committing to donate or fundraise a minimum of $2,700.
Registration will open soon. For more information, visit the event's page HERE.
