Glen Cove Woman Wins 5K Race

Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00

Lauren Jensen finished first at Sands Point Sprint for the Feinstein Institute

On Aug. 11, 31-year-old Glen Cove speedster Lauren Jensen scored as the first woman finisher overall in the Sands Point Sprint for the Feinstein Institute, a 5 Kilometer race held on the grounds of the Sands Point Preserve. Jensen finished the run in 21 minutes, 12 seconds, which was four seconds in front of runner-up Bradie Ann Dwyer of Garden City.

A total of 300 runners and walkers successfully completed the run at the Sands Point Preserve, fighting off less-than-ideal hot and muggy conditions. The Sands Point course is not an easy course; the trail in the third mile can be tough to navigate, and the hill leading up from the trail is one of the nastiest found in any Long Island race, according to Mike Polansky of the Greater Long Island Running Club, which hosted the event.

Mill Neck’s 6th Annual Fundraiser

Friday, 27 July 2012 00:00

A Successful Tee-off Held for Early Childhood Center

The Mill Neck Family of Organizations hosted their 6th annual Spring Swing Invitational Golf Tournament on June 14, at the North Hills Country Club in Manhasset. Sunny skies and pleasant temperatures made a perfect day to tee off and to kick-off the “Restoring Hope, Building Dreams” campaign for Mill Neck’s Early Childhood Center (ECC). Part of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, the ECC provides early and intensive assistance to children, ages 3 and 4, who may have deficits in speech, language/ communication, cognitive and gross and fine motor development. This year’s Spring Swing proceeds will assist in funding the planned $800,000 much-needed building renovation project in order to upgrade and enhance the ECC’s internal structure and functionality.

Before teeing off, golfers had an opportunity to meet with Bud Harrelson, who made an appearance during brunch. The former shortstop, who played with the New York Mets during their legendary 1969 World Series Championship, graciously signed autographs and related his personal connection to deafness. Harrelson, current co-owner of the Long Island Ducks and member of the coaching staff, explained that a cousin in his father’s family was deaf.
