Blue Ribbon Prostate Cancer Run Rescheduled To December 9

Moved to Syosset-Woodbury Community Park

The 2012 Blue Ribbon 5K Run For Prostate Cancer, which had been scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 18, has been postponed until Sunday, Dec. 9, and has been moved to a new location, Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, 7800 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury.

It is never an easy task to have to postpone an event, not to mention having to move it to a different location. However, the devastation from Superstorm Sandy required it. The Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is not yet safe for an event to take place there due to the storm. Fortunately, with the enthusiastic cooperation of Town Supervisor Venditto and the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department, the event has been rescheduled and relocated to the scenic grounds of Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, which is just a mile from the original location.

If you have already registered for the run, there is nothing else for you to do but to show up at the Community Park sufficiently in advance of the 9:30 a.m. starting time. If you’re not yet registered, you can sign up at www.imfcares.org/fall-blue-ribbon-run. You can also follow the links on that page to download the race application or to set up your own fundraising page.

Free prostate cancer screenings will be available from 8 – 11 a.m. Please bring nonperishable food items for distribution to Sandy Superstorm victims. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 631-247-0100 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

New online company debuts

Two Long Island childhood friends, Scott Reich and Michael Winik, recently left their respective careers as an attorney and investment banker to pursue their dream of starting a business together, online food market OurHarvest.

“When Mike and I decided to start a business, we knew it had to reflect our shared love of food, address the lifestyles of our fellow Long Islanders, and be socially responsible,” said Reich.

Stretching tips for the high school athlete

Prior to the start of high school running season, Garden City’s Physical Therapy Options (PTO) had an opportunity to provide a presentation to members of Sacred Heart Academy’s cross country team. Team members gathered at Garden City’s New York Running Company to learn strategies and tips for a successful fall season.

PTO staff members Dr. Meghan Goetz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and PTO Aide Mike Murphy discussed the importance of stretching to prevent injury and provided strategies and tips for success for the high school runner.

The league started on Saturday, Sept. 13 at Garden City’s Tullamore Park. It runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. A uniform shirt and soccer balls are provided. Cleats and soccer shorts are recommended and players must wear shin guards. Age groups range from pre-k through 12th grade. Garden City residents and non-Garden City residents are welcome.
