Runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes from all over Long Island are invited to join the investment firm of David Lerner Associates and the Greater Long Island Running Club for the 19th annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run, to be held on Thursday evening, June 10 at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.
The entire net proceeds will once again be turned over to the special Police Crisis Fund that has been established to aid Nassau and Suffolk County law enforcement officers and their families in time of emergency. In the 19 years of its existence, the fund has distributed over $250,000 to local police officers and their families. In 2008, the Fund was privileged to be able to make a $25,000 donation to Nassau County Police Officer Kevin Baribault, who suffered multiple injuries when he was struck by a drunk driver’s vehicle on the Long Island Expressway. Thanks to David Lerner Associates and the Long Island running community, the money was there to help Officer Baribault and his family in their time of need, and the race committee is hopeful that Officer Baribault will be on hand to serve as the Official starter of the 2010 run.
