Forty-five athletes took part in the event, which traversed four different fitness centers, including the Sid Jacobson JCC and Hot Ryde in Roslyn, Equinox Fitness in Woodbury, and Lifetime Fitness in Syosset. All of the spin and exercise instructors volunteered their services to teach the classes. The spinners biked and grooved to the rhythm of invigorating music for 30-minute intervals at three of the locations. Warm yoga, Pilates and ViPR classes were interspersed with the spin segments for an additional fitness challenge to the athletes. Participants traveled as a group by a coach to each site. Food was served on the bus and local merchants provided raffle prizes.

This run is being held the weekend leading up to the Belmont Stakes, the third and final leg of the North American Triple Crown, and has the potential to do more to raise awareness of prostate cancer than any other Long Island event has ever done before.
The run is being conducted by IMF with the assistance of the New York Racing Association, the Greater Long Island Running Club, and the Elmont Chamber of Commerce.

When she moved with her family from Queens, Kristen Kenny, now 22, needed a place to make friends. Mikey Zangari, now 20, was shy and making friends was difficult.
“The Boys & Girls Club gave me a positive place to find good friends,” says Kenny. “But beyond that it helped me decide to become a teacher.”
