Event Manager Mindy Davidson of Seaford recently served as the Greater Long Island Running Club’s (GLIRC) coordinator of the 2nd Annual UJA-Federation of New York Summer’s Not Done AquaRun. The event, which consisted of an 800-Meter swim followed by a three-mile run, was held at TOBAY Beach in Massapequa recently.The entire net proceeds of the Aqua Run go to benefit UJA-Federation of New York, together with its 60,000 contributors and 100 agencies, and its efforts to transform the lives of 4.5 million people in New York, in Israel, and around the world. The world’s largest community-based philanthropy, UJA-Federation raises funds that sustain the activities of health, human service, educational and community-building agencies, enabling it to help the sick and the hungry, connect children to their Jewish roots, and offer humanitarian relief to communities devastated by a crisis.
“TOBAY Beach is one of the premier recreational venues on Long Island, and we are pleased that the Town of Oyster Bay allowed us to utilize TOBAY for what was an outstanding morning of family fun and competition,” observed Davidson. “With the inclusion of a two person team relay category, even those who were uncomfortable with a swimming competition were able to be part of the event, and a big crowd showed up to have some fun and benefit a great cause.”
