Special Olympics New York presents this fun way to raise money for a good cause. The Rundead is a 5k trail run through Brady Park in Massapequa Park starting at 8:30 a.m. where runners must escape hungry zombies.
Each runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be attempting to take these one at a time. If you lose all three, your dead and the zombies have won.
Health stations will be scattered throughout the course. If you choose to make a stop and receive a time penalty, you can gain another lifeline. Use speed, strategy… whatever it takes to keep your flags. If you finish the race with at least one, you have survived. If zombies have taken all your flags you can complete the race but you wont be eligible for awards.
Join up for this wild new event. You can sign up as a zombie or a runner, so there’s something for everyone. Log onto 2013rUNDEAD.kintera.orgt/BradyPark to register.

These days, raising kids is rougher and tougher than ever — sometimes parents just need a break. And when that break is beaconing, both new parents and old pros look to the ever-reliable babysitter to provide a few hours respite from the many duties of caring for children.
However, parents often have a difficult time locating an honest, trustworthy and reliable babysitter in a pinch. But the Massapequa Public Library’s Babysitter Job Fair aimed to remedy this problem.

With the Nassau County title on the line, junior kicker Zach Kolodny was the most composed player on the field. With time expiring, he booted the game-winning kick to send the Farmingdale Dalers into the Long Island Championship with a 29-26 victory over the Massapequa Chiefs.
“It’s a great feeling,” said Kolodny. “I was confident from the beginning that I would make the kick,” he added. “We practice this every day.”
The game featured a bevy of twists and took on a completely different feel in the fourth quarter than it did for the first three quarters.
