Two Local Athletes United in Sport

Friday, 06 January 2012 00:00

Matt Sheehan (Holy Trinity High School) and Rory Walsh (Kellenberg High School) grew up on opposite sides of town and have been competing against each other since their elementary school days.

First, the boys squared off in the SMAA Flag Football League and later in Williamsport Baseball – Matt for Central Nassau Little League and Rory for East Meadow League. They squared off in CYO as well with Matt representing St. Brigid’s and Rory, St. Raphael. It seems only fitting that they are still competing and being recognized for their hard work in the Catholic High School Football League.

Cycle for Survival Gears Up for 2nd Annual Event on Long Island

Written by Linda Portney Goldstein Friday, 25 November 2011 00:00

Registration is underway; event supports research for treatment of rare cancers

Cycle for Survival is the annual, indoor, relay-style, cycling event that raises money for research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). It will take place here on the Island, February 4 at the Equinox Gym on Glen Cove Road in Greenvale and you don’t have to be a member at Equinox to participate. Three things make Cycle for Survival unique.

First and foremost, Cycle is the only event of its kind that exclusively supports research on rare forms of cancer. Most people don’t realize that all pediatric cancers, pancreatic, ovarian, cervical, brain, head, neck, Leukemia and Lymphoma as well as metastatic melanoma and stomach cancer fall under the very wide umbrella referred to as “rare” cancers. The definition of a “rare “ cancer is one with fewer than 200,000 affected individuals in the United States, however as an aggregate more than 50 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. have one of these “rare” forms. Representatives of Cycle for Survival note that research on rare cancers is often drastically under funded and in general there are fewer treatment options for these patients because funding for drug trials often lags behind more commercially viable drugs.
