About Hauppauge Heroes

Welcome to the Hauppauge Heroes page! Our mission is to unite our community in the fight against cancer. October 18th is a special day known as Hauppauge Heroes Day. This day is dedicated to anyone in our community who is fighting or has lost the battle to cancer.


Hauppauge Heroes Day - October 18th

On this day, everyone can wear their Hauppauge Heroes shirt in honor or remembrance of a loved one who has had cancer. It's a symbol of unity, support, and love for those battling this disease.


Light the Night Walk - October 21st

Following Hauppauge Heroes Day, we will gather 300+ Hauppauge families to join 5000 other Long Islanders at the Light the Night Walk at Eisenhower Park. Together, we'll walk in honor or remembrance of those dear to us who have faced cancer. Wearing our Hauppauge Heroes shirts, we will proudly represent our support for Hauppauge and all our loved ones.


Honoring Ryan Starace

This year, we have the special privilege of honoring a brave 5th grader named Ryan Starace, who has battled leukemia since he was 4 years old. His courage inspires us all and reminds us why we walk: to bring hope, awareness, and support to those fighting cancer.

Join us, become a part of Hauppauge Heroes, and help make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Together, we can light the night!

300 Hauppauge Families

Join us, Hauppauge families! We're seeking 300 households to come with us and Light the Night in a thrilling fight against cancer! Be part of this incredible evening, where we'll ignite hope, celebrate life, and stand together. It's more than an event; it's a powerful statement of community and courage. Come on, let's make a difference together and have a blast doing it!

About Ryan

About Ryan Starace

At Hauppauge Heroes, our inspiration and drive come from the incredible strength and courage of Ryan Starace, a remarkable fourth-grader from Forest Brook in Hauppauge. Ryan's battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia has not only shaped his life but also ignited a unifying movement within our community.


Ryan's Journey


Ryan was diagnosed with leukemia a few years ago, a moment that profoundly changed his world and his family's. In the midst of uncertainty, they found a beacon of hope and support in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). LLS provided essential assistance and empowerment, transforming the Starace family's challenging journey into an inspiring force that resonates beyond Hauppauge.


Our Mission


Motivated by Ryan's story, Hauppauge Heroes was founded. Our mission is to unite Hauppauge behind this noble cause, creating a community that supports those facing similar struggles. We aim to bring people together to not only raise awareness but also contribute to cancer research.
