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.

A little bit of Hollywood has come to Plainview. The Loft Sound Studio, a Plainview-based vocal and performance training facility, is the creation of lifelong music artists Donnie Klang and Matthew LaPorte. The duo says that they draw upon their personal experience of the ups and downs of the recording industry to give kids today the chance to be superstars.
“Essentially, we’re looking for the next Justin Bieber, someone we can train and teach them how to really become an artist, put them on YouTube and hope they really blow up,” said LaPorte. “If they do, through our connections that we made while we were in the music industry the past 15 years, we would try and get them a record deal.”
