Morse Wins Sands Point 5K Run

Congratulations to veteran Massapequa runner Glenn Morse, who scored as the first finisher in the 60-64 age group in the Sands Point Preserve 5 Kilometer Sprint for the Feinstein Institute, held on the grounds of the Sands Point preserve on Saturday morning, August 15. A total of 350 runners successfully completed the 5 Kilometer (3.107 Miles) course.

Morse crossed the finish line in a time of 23 minutes, 55 seconds, comfortably in front of David Frisone of New Hyde Park, who scored in second place in that age group.

Race Director Abe Bernstein of the host Greater Long Island Running Club went all out to ensure the success of this event, as his way of saying “thank you” to the people from North Shore-LIJ’s Feinstein Institute who got him back on his feet and back on the roads and track after a bout with lymphoma. 

“Congratulations and thanks to Glenn and to all my other buddies from the Massapequas and elsewhere for showing up to enjoy a morning of fun and fitness at beautiful Sands Point and to support my efforts to raise some much needed funds for the Feinstein Institute and the battle against lymphoma,” Bernstein said.

Donations to the Feinstein Institute are still most welcome – and can be sent c/o Abe Bernstein, 54 Trumbull Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.
