2nd Annual Katie's Run
Sunday, June 26th, 2011 9:30 AMCongratulations to all the club members who came out to run the 2nd Annual Katie's Run. Once again Will Hansler ran a greta race finishing in second place overall in a time of 16:55. Club member Kevin Healy was also an award winner taking second place in his age group.
The Second Annual Katie's Run celebrated the life of Katie McBride while raising important funds for the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. In 2010 this race raised more than $10,000. for Ronald McDonald House of Long Island.
Katie McBride, daughter of Retired NYPD Detective Mike McBride, was a vibrant young girl when she was stricken with Leukemia at eleven years old. Althouh Katie lost her battle at a much too young age, her spirt will live on through this event run in her honor.
In addition to a competitive 5K Run, the event will feature a 2 Mile Walk, a Dri-Fit T-Shirt, a free barbeque for all participants, and the Ronald McDonald House Children's Fun Run.
If you can't make it to the event please consider registering for the 2 Mile Walk which will serve as a donation if you don't attend.
