Laurel Run weekend to include new event

Posted by Chris Anderson - April 23, 2015 - Events, News - No Comments

A new event has been added to Laurel Run weekend.

On Sunday, July 19, the “One Small Kick” kickball tournament will be held at Silver Creek Central School.  The event is a fund-raiser to benefit The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research.  Prader-Willi Syndrome occurs in about one out of every 15,000 births.  Common characteristics of Prader-Willi include abnormal growth and body composition (small stature, low lean-body mass and early-onset childhood obesity); hypotonia (weak muscles) at birth; insatiable hunger; extreme obesity; and intellectual disability.

The One Small Kick tournament is being spearheaded by Mike Matesevac, a Silver Creek High School graduate now living Down South who returns to this area every year to participate in Laurel Run.

The cost to register for the kickball tournament is $100 per team, and teams can consist of 8 to 12 players.
