In memory of Nick Strub

Race day in honor of Port Byron native Nicholas Theodore Strub, who lost his life to complications of Ewing's Sarcoma on November 22, 2011.

He was 29 years old.

Nick was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in September of 2006 and spent more than five years fighting his battle. Nick never let his disease get in the way of his passion for life. He had the warmest smile, the kindest heart, and a great sense of humor. In 29 years, Nick touched the lives of so many people: he was a loving husband, caring son, nurturing brother, and best friend to many.

Nick's life, as well as so many others with Ewing's Sarcoma, was cut far too short, but his legacy lives on through the lives he touched. We invite you to join us as we run, party, and celebrate his life!
