Mitchell Cangelosi was a dedicated son, brother, fiancé, teacher, lifeguard, and friend to many. He was taken from us suddenly on August 11, 2006. In Mitchell’s memory we have established a Scholarship Fund to benefit a student athlete from Sayville High School that exemplifies Mitchell’s spirit and dedication to academic and athletic excellence.
Mitch spent his last seven summers as a lifeguard at the Point O’ Woods community on Fire Island. As part of his workout each day, he would run from the lifeguard stand at Point O’ Woods to the stand at Sailors Haven and back, a distance of about three miles.
We are inviting everyone to join us on Saturday, July 21st, as we walk or run on the beach from Sailors Haven (Sunken Forest) to Point O’ Woods at 10 AM.
The recommended donation to participate is $25.00, which includes a memorial T-shirt and roundtrip ferry ticket. Sayville ferries will run a special ferry at 8:00am for us. In addition, there will be raffles after the run. Please respond by June 30th. If you cannot join us on the beach, but would like to help the scholarship fund, donations are welcome. All proceeds will be used to fund the scholarship. Should you have any questions, please call 631-589-5089 or visit the web site at http://www.mitchsrun.com
