The North Fork Breast Health Coalition, the Coalition for Women’s Breast Health at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, and Lucia’s Angels are to benefit from the 20th Shelter Island 5K run/walk Saturday, a race that starts and finishes at Crescent Beach.
Medals are to be awarded to the top male and female finishers, and to the top-finishing breast cancer survivor among the runners and among the walkers. The team with the most participants will also receive a prize.
A stretching clinic is to begin at 10 a.m. The race is to begin at 11. The early registration fees are $35 for adults and $15 for children 14-and-under. Those fees on race day will be $40 and $20.
Teams made up of East Hampton School District teachers are to vie Wednesday on the high school’s turf field in a fund-raising “Kicks For Cancer” game whose proceeds are to go to the Hauppauge High School-based organization founded 11 years ago to help families contending with the disease.
Tickets for the 4:30 “Battle of the Bonackers” will cost $5. Last year’s event raised $1,700. Joe DiGirolomo, the varsity girls soccer team’s assistant coach, who scored the winning goal for the Pink team, was the M.V.P.
The school’s dance team and its band are to perform, raffle tickets will be on sale, “and anyone who wants to will get a chance to put a penalty kick by the high school’s principal, Adam Fine.”
In addition to East Hampton’s under-10 Tomahawk team winning a championship in the Brookhaven fall league, the u-11 team, coached by Mike Hand and Matt Meehan, was a playoff finalist, and the u-9 and u-12 teams “ended up playing in consolation games,” according to Kenny Dodge, one of the u-9 coaches, along with Vinny Alversa and Chris Carney. Henry Meyer and Nicole Dickinson coached the u-12 team.
“I can’t believe it’s been four years already, but the program and the teams are still going strong,” Dodge said.
