On Sunday, November 9, several teachers and their families participated in the 7th Annual Long Island Run for the Warriors in Lindenhurst. This race is dedicated to the men and women wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, their families, and families of the fallen. We hear that Countrywood kindergarten teacher Maria Rodriguez and her son Leonardo ran the 5k, and her husband Leopoldo ran the 10k.  We also hear that Rory Sherman, PE teacher at Silas Wood, was there as well with his wife, Michelle, and two daughters, Chloe and Olivia. Each year the race raises over $200,000 for the hope for Warriors foundation
