As July Fourth arrives, we thank those who have sacrificed their lives for our nation, those who served their country and those who continue to serve. The Corporal Kyle R. Schneider Foundation is a nonprofit organization, formed in honor of Baldwinsville resident Kyle Schnieder, who died while serving as a United States Marine back in 2011. His mother Lorie Schneider tells us why she has dedicated her life to helping others in his name.

Speaking of July fourth the ninth annual Maureen T. O’Hara “Teal There’s A Cure” Run/Walk to benefit ovarian cancer research and services will be held on the fourth of July in Marcellus. Dorothy Morse is one of the organizers and a former co-worker of Maureen O’Hara who passed away from ovarian cancer back in 2012.

The Salt City Walk for Epilepsy is being held Saturday, July 8th at Longbranch Park in Liverpool. Organizer Christine Diorio got involved in the cause when her daughter Gabby was diagnosed with epilepsy. They both tell us how you can help.

The Syracuse Middle Eastern Festival has become so popular that it is now running four days – July 6th through the 9th at St. Elias Church which is on route 173 across from Howlett Hill Road in Syracuse. Organizer Dr. Ramzi Khairallah has the rundown.
