Runners Edge Hosts Bagel Fun Run
The Runner's Edge in Farmingdale, in conjunction with the Massapequa Road Runners, held a Bagel Fun Run at the store. It was a great way for everyone to end their year, run some miles, share some stories, and shop for those last minute gifts. The staff at the Runner's Edge provided coffee and bagels for everyone. The event culminated with a raffle drawing, with monies raised going to the ALS Foundation in memory of Eunice Harris. Eunice was quite a force in the Long Island running community.
