5TH ANNUAL MIC 5K - A LETTER FROM THE ORGANIZER 
LAST YEAR'S RACE, HELD ON OCTOBER 14TH, WAS ANOTHER GREAT SUCCESS. FOR THE 4TH YEAR IN A ROW, THE WEATHER WAS BEAUTIFUL AND THE COURSE WAS FAST AND FLAT, JUST AS ADVERTISED. THE GREAT TURNOUT WE HAD LAST YEAR MADE THE DAY EVEN BETTER AND IT WAS OUR MOST SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISER TO DATE. IN FACT, FOR THE FIRST TIME, WE RAN OUT OF TIE DYE T-SHIRTS. I HOPE THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN, BUT I AM ENCOURAGING EVERYBODY TO PRE-REGISTER BEFORE THE RACE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY RECIEVE ONE OF THESE AWESOME SHIRTS....THEY HAVE BECOME VERY POPULAR OVER THE PAST 4 YEARS. AFTERWARDS, THE RACERS WERE ONCE AGAIN GREETED WITH BAGELS, BANANAS, AND PLENTY OF WATER. LIVE MUSIC, SUPPLIED BY "BLIND SQUIRRELS", KEPT EVERYBODY ENTERTAINED DURING PRE-RACE AND POST-RACE FESTIVITIES. DUE TO THE CONTINUING SUPPORT OF OUR MANY SPONSORS, THE RACE PARTICIPANTS ONCE AGAIN WERE ABLE TO USE THEIR COUPONS AT GINO'S PIZZERIA AND BUBBA'S BURRITO BAR FOR EITHER A SLICE OF PIZZA OR A TACO, AND WE WERE ABLE TO RAISE ABOUT $6,000 AFTER ALL WAS SAID AND DONE. THE ENTIRE EVENT WAS A SUCCESS, AND I WOULD PERSONNALY LIKE TO THANK ALL WHO WERE INVOLVED. IT MEANS A GREAT DEAL TO ME THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO BE A PART OF MY ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH THIS FUNDRAISER AS AN ANNUAL EVENT IN THE TOWN OF ISLIP AND TO HELP CREATE A LEGACY IN THE NAME OF MY GOOD FRIEND MICHAEL MICHELINI. IN THE PROCESS, WE ARE ALL HELPING TO WIPE OUT THE AWFUL BLOOD CANCERS THAT TOOK HIS LIFE. THIS YEAR'S RACE SHOULD BE ANOTHER GREAT DAY, WITH MORE RUNNERS AND SPONSORS WILLING TO SUPPORT THIS GREAT CAUSE, THE LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMA SOCIETY. I HOPE THAT YOU CAN ALL JOIN US ONCE AGAIN, WHILE BRINGING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES.  THANK YOU.

SINCERELY,
