About This Activity

Jason Needle is a 35 year old man from Mahopac, NY who has inspired countless people with his positive outlook and can-do attitude throughout his battle with acute myeloid leukemia.  He has undergone two bone marrow transplants and over 20 different kinds of chemotherapy over his five-year battle with this disease.


Prior to his diagnosis, Jay's career was lefted around kids and improving their lives through sports performance training.  Help Jay continue to impact the lives of children by supporting the Huson Valley chapter of Make-A-Wish.  This chapter has granted over 2,300 wishes for local kids dealing with life-threatening illnesses.  The goal for this year's Jason's Army 5k is to raise $7,500 so we can grant a wish for one of these deserving kids!
