Long Island Regional Update – 12/13/2013
Thank you to Suffolk County Community College for hosting our Champions Challenge Floor Hockey Tournament on November 17th. This year was a huge success thanks to the efforts of the games organizing committee. Lisa Hamilton, Carissa Scarfi, Danielle Perri and of course all the volunteers who came out and allowed our athletes to showcase their abilities.
Another Thank You is in order to Carol Roseto. Her efforts allowed us another hockey tournament at South Side HS on December 7th. She recruited volunteers and provided the wonderful facilities. She is a true asset to the organization.
And to round it out a big THANKS to Christine Dumont; Floor Hockey Sports Director. She is the one that keeps these games organized, from recruiting the referees to managing all the games. Without her we would not be able to provide such great events for our athletes.

WILL YOU SURVIVE? The rUNDEAD is a 5k trail run in which runners start off with a flag belt and three flags representing their lifelines. Zombies will be stationed throughout the course attempting to take them one at a time. Once a runner loses all three flags, they are “dead” and the zombies have won. While the runner can still finish the race, they will not be eligible for awards. Registration starts at 8:30am and the race begins at 10:30am. All money raised will go to support the 61,582 athletes of Special Olympics New York. To register please sign up at www.therundead.org or click here
