Healthy Run Heads To Plainview

Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School will once again serve as the starting and finishing line of the Heart & Sole 5-Kilometer Run.

The 11th annual event, organized by the Greater Long Island Running Club and sponsored by Central Island Heath Care, will hit the ground running Saturday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m.

The fundraising run, at Central Park Road and Southern Parkway and hosted by Plainview and Syosset hospitals, is being held to raise awareness of diabetes and to help fund scholarly activities and community outreach programs.

Dr. Alan Mensch, senior vice president of medical affairs for Plainview and Syosset hospitals and a long time member of the running club, will serve as the chairman of the event once again. Race management will be handled by the Greater long island Running Club.

The 5K Run features a fast, flat USA Track & Field certified course, awards three deep in five year age groups, outstanding technical shirts for all entrants, ample post race refreshments, generous post-race door prizes — including two flat screen high definition televisions. The 5K will be preceded by a 1/4 mile fun run for youngsters age 12 and under.

Runners can register online at www.glirc.org through 11:59 p.m. on July 18 or call the GLIRC office at 516-349-7646 for hard copy applications or more information. Contact Kathy DiVeglio at 631-242-3089 to volunteer.

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano recently announced that the annual “1863 Thanksgiving Holiday Celebration” at Old Bethpage Village Restoration will be held on Saturday, Nov. 22 and Sunday, Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors to Old Bethpage Village, the re-created mid-19th Century village, will be able to enjoy the sights and aromas of an old-fashioned Thanksgiving including decorated pumpkin pies baked in a beehive oven and turkey roasted over an open fire. In addition, each afternoon, traditional fiddle music will be played, and children’s stories will be read several times each day.

A little bit of Hollywood has come to Plainview. The Loft Sound Studio, a Plainview-based vocal and performance training facility, is the creation of lifelong music artists Donnie Klang and Matthew LaPorte. The duo says that they draw upon their personal experience of the ups and downs of the recording industry to give kids today the chance to be superstars.

“Essentially, we’re looking for the next Justin Bieber, someone we can train and teach them how to really become an artist, put them on YouTube and hope they really blow up,” said LaPorte. “If they do, through our connections that we made while we were in the music industry the past 15 years, we would try and get them a record deal.”
