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.

Founded in 1995 by owner Bruce Grossman, the Cultural Arts Playhouse of Plainview is a year round, regional, off-off Broadway-style theater that has produced over 500 productions including educational and touring shows. It is also located in Roslyn Heights and Wantagh.

Named as one of Long Island’s Best Live Theaters, the theater serves more than 20,000 people each year with its professional adult productions, children’s theater performances, and theater education classes for ages 7-18. Artistic Director Tony Frangipane took time out of his busy schedule to talk theater.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
