Hope Bednarski’s late mother, Doris Connor, was always quick to offer a helping hand to others. Eleven years after Connor’s death from a brain aneurysm, Bednarski is carrying on her mother’s giving spirit by raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation through the annual Run for Doris, which includes a 5K race, 1-mile walk and half-mile kids’ fun run.
Don’t let the zombies fool you; the organizers of the Hallowrun for Hunger don’t want to eat your brains. But they do want to feed people. The 5K run, now in its second year, aims to raise money for the Food Bank of Central New York. Founder Liz Westfall hopes to raise enough this year to fund 20,000 meals.

For the sixth year, some 800 teal-clad runners and walkers will take to the streets to raise awareness for ovarian cancer. The Teal Ribbon Run/Walk benefits Hope for Heather, a Liverpool-based organization dedicated to helping women with ovarian cancer and raising awareness about the devastating disease. The nonprofit was started by Frieda Weeks to honor the memory of her daughter, Heather. In November of 2008, Heather lost her battle with an aggressive form of colon cancer. But before her passing, she worked for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, making it her mission to eradicate the disease. After her death, her mother started Hope for Heather to carry on that mission.

Dodge declined to identify the successful candidate, but reliable sources said that Golden will accept the appointment.
Crenshaw second-quarter touchdown holds up for Warriors
Style was, for the most part, lacking from the Liverpool football team’s 2014 season debut – but the substance more than made up for that deficiency.
Since May 23, no one has seen or heard from Edward Weslowski. Now, in hopes of bringing the Clay man home, his family is offering a reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
Sometimes it takes a while before it all sinks in. Now, on the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, maybe we can finally reflect upon the horror and try to learn something from the tragedy. At Nichol’s deli counter a couple weeks ago I bumped into Donna Marsh O’Connor – the former Liverpool Central School District Board of Education member. We chatted about her work, teaching writing and rhetoric at Syracuse University, and about her husband’s book-in-progress.
