CSEA Nassau Local 830, Nassau County’s largest public service union with 10,000 members, is holding their First Annual 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, Oct. 31, at Nassau Community College in Garden City. They have partnered with the Jorge Posada Foundation for Craniosynostosis and CAPPS (Craniosynostosis and Positional Plagiocephaly Support Inc.) Hundreds of runners and dozens of sponsors have already confirmed participation.
Craniosynostosis is a condition in which one or more of the sutures of an infant’s skull prematurely fuse. Surgery is the only treatment for this. Positional Plagiocephaly is when the sutures are open and early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid further deformity. One in every 2,000 infants are affected by Craniosynostosis and one in every 350 by Positional Plagiocephaly.
This year the Running Club of Garden City, a committee within the Welcoming Club of Garden City, is pleased to report their plans to participate in many exciting running events! It is with great pleasure that committee co-leaders Lynnette McKenna and Lisa Colletti announce that over 50 women from our club will be participating in the first ever, women’s only ”Diva Half Marathon” on Saturday, Oct. 3. This event will be taking place in the Eisenhower Park and Museum Row area.
Many of these women had never run more than a mile or two at any time before joining our group. Within a few weeks of their training, mileage racked up and friendships evolved over the early morning runs throughout the village. The Divas have become a well-known group within our town and a familiar fixture at the St. Paul’s meeting spot.

Garden City’s Matthew Borges, Kyle Brattan, Nick Gray, Bryan Irwin, Scott Irwin, Brogan Mahon, Jack Tigh and Thomas Wright all contributed to FLG’s lacrosse program this summer. Massapequa-based For the Love of the Game (FLG) Boys 2015 Lacrosse Team had a successful record this summer, winning four out of six tournaments: The Juvenile Diabetes Tournament in Massapequa, Upper Atlantic in Downingtown, PA, Beast of the East, in Amherst, MA and the Harvard Crimson Tournament in Cambridge, MA. Four tournaments were played at their seventh grade age level while tournaments Tri State in Princeton NJ and Lax Max in York PA were each played at the eighth grade age level. While the increase in age level was harder, it helped prepare the 23 players for the eighth-grade level. As the season progressed, the team developed a much greater intellect for the game. Additionally, the coaching staff noticed the team skills growing along with the team chemistry, as well as the Boys overall excitement. During the season and while attending FLG’s one-week summer camp, lifelong friendships were ultimately built.

Congratulations to 17-year-old William Slattery of Garden City, who scored as the second finisher overall in Aug. 14 Sands Point Preserve Sprint for the Feinstein Institute 5 Kilometer Run.
Slattery, who finished first overall in the 2009 edition of the Run, tried valiantly to stay with ultimate winner Joe Morris of Farmingdale, but held fast to second place. Morris finished in 17 minutes 14 seconds, and Slattery was only 8 seconds behind him in 17:22.
