Rick Shalvoy, LI's Man of Summer, Rows for a Cure
On Wednesday, August 4 after battling an oppressive heat, Rick Shalvoy rowed into Glen Cove to the dock at Steamboat Landing, where he was greeted by Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp, other local dignitaries and residents, and Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. members. His deep red back emanated heat as he walked slowly up the dock to the party. A young girl presented him a gift and speeches were made in his honor. His slow movements demonstrated the fatigue in his muscles, but Rick greeted each individual and shook every hand before he retired for a shower and dinner, to prepare for the next day's journey.
