Union Catholic High School

Making a Difference

The Student Movement Against Cancer (SMAC) was proud to present our first annual signature event: Movers, Shakers, Change Makers, a night of fun, fitness, and fighting cancer to support the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation (ECF)! For one special evening, SMAC harnessed student leadership and activism, showcased healthy living, and raised much needed funds for families experiencing a pediatric cancer diagnosis. The ECF provides New Jersey families facing the crisis of pediatric cancer a place to turn for comfort and support through professional in-home counseling and a uniquely tailored package of assistance – all free-of-charge.

Current students from all schools with active SMAC chapters were invited to join us for this special event, and we're thrilled to report that students from SIX different high schools came out to celebrate SMAC and support our cause!

The evening was a smash hit! Not only did everyone have fun while breaking a sweat, but we raised $4000+ for the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation!
