These Super-Comfy Socks Are Helping to Fund Cancer Research

  • Most 20-year-olds are more concerned with making it to their 8 a.m. class on time. 
  • Matt Gresia started a fashion brand to help cure cancer.

Matt Gresia was born in the Morris Park area of the Bronx and moved to Eastchester with his family when he was seven. He always knew he wanted to run his own business, to be a mogul and guide a company’s future. Conversely, he never got to know one of his grandfathers. These two disparate issues were what came together in 2016 to create Canswer Sock Co., an organization dedicated to creating high-quality fashion that is also affordable, and still donating 10 percent of its profits directly to cancer research and organizations aiding cancer patients and their families.

On the heels of Breast Cancer and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Months, we were lucky enough to spend a little time talking toes with Gresia himself.

How did you originally get hooked up with Brett Conti from Fortune NY and ClockworkDJ for the collaborations you’ve done with them?

I grew up a skateboarder, so I’ve known about Fortune since around 2012. Brett does YouTube full time now, so his face is really behind the brand, but back then, that wasn’t really the case. I had no clue who he was. Turns out, he went to Manhattan College, the school I’m currently studying at. Long story short, I met him at a lecture he did at school and he gave me a lot of advice when I first started. Fast forward a few years, we became good friends and eventually did a collaboration. Doing business with trustworthy friends is seamless because you can ditch the idea of having to do contracts and legal agreements and all that.

JNEWS: Tobin, John [MC????] measured the VCP starting line

Van Cortlandt’s magic number unites generations

For cross country runners throughout the Northeast, Van Cortlandt Park is a venerated place, so central to the sport that it has its own language, so demanding that it long ago inspired some college students to survey and measure the course to ensure fairness, and so daunting that it has a magic number: 13.

The 21/2-mile course unites the generations, providing them a shared experience and, for male high school runners, a common goal — breaking 13 minutes.

“The starting line was straight across and parallel to the walkway that goes from Broadway to the mansion,” said John Tobin, Carroll’s coach at St. Peter’s, a 1956 St. Peter’s grad and an alum of Manhattan College, just across Broadway and up the hill from VCP.  “The finish line was never in a fixed position but generally in the same area as today but no ‘fixed’ concrete monument with flags as today.

“I know that while I was a sophomore at Manhattan College, some Manhattan engineering students — myself included — measured (with surveying instruments) a curved starting line with the center of the radius being the pole marking the then-entrance into the cowpath. This at least made the start fairer than when, if you were closest to the mansion, you were 25 yards closer to the cowpath.”

Northwest Guilford names Dan Tichy boys lacrosse coach
Staff Report 23 hrs ago

Northwest Guilford has hired Dan Tichy as boys lacrosse coach, athletics director John Hughes said today in a news release.

He replaces longtime Vikings coach Mark Goldsmith, who was relieved of his coaching duties and suspended from teaching in October. Guilford County Schools officials would not discuss the reasons for Goldsmith’s dismissal, saying it “was a personnel matter.”

Tichy spent the last six years as an assistant coach at Greensboro Day. He also is a head coach with Triad Elite Lacrosse and a volunteer coach with Burlington Parks and Recreation lacrosse program.

Tichy is a 2001 graduate of Manhattan College, where he played Division I lacrosse for the Jaspers. He is a native of Bayport, N.Y., and lives in Burlington with his wife, Elizabeth, and two children, Michaela and Andrew.

JOBIT: Muellers, Ted [MC1958] sunning streak since ’68

Long IslandSee how he runs: Rockville Centre man has had a 50-year streak

  • Ted Muellers has put his best foot forward in local race each year since 1968.
  • Ted Muellers running with his son, Brian Muellers,

Updated December 1, 2017 10:49 AM

Before the running boom, before everybody and his uncle seemed to be doing a marathon, before $200 running shoes and stores to sell them, before Frank Shorter and Dr. Ken Cooper, there was Ted Muellers.

It was Thanksgiving Day 1968, when the then-32-year-old Muellers lined up with a bunch of local high school students and ran a course of about 2 1⁄2 miles through the streets of Rockville Centre. Muellers, who had been a half-miler in high school in Queens and at Manhattan College, was one of three “old men” who ran along with the kids in that informal race.

Fifty years and two event incarnations later, Muellers, 81, is still running the lineal descendant of that original Turkey Trot. Since 1978, it’s been the Rockville Centre 10-kilometer (6.2 miles); a 5k (3.1 mile) event was later added to the program. The race is now held on the second Saturday in November — and Muellers has been there for every one of them. Counting the 10 years of the Thanksgiving Day version of the race (1968-1977), the 30 editions of the 10k he ran and the 5k that he has done as a concession to age for the past decade, and that adds up to 50 years.
