Congratulations to Jenney Tesoriero of Westbury, who won the second place award in the 35-39 age group in the third annual edition of the Grillo &Associates Blazing Trails 4 Autism 4 Mile Run on Oct. 24.
The 39-year-old Tesoriero finished the four-mile course in a time of 30:30, a 7:38 per mile pace.
This was the biggest of the three Autism 4 Milers to date – with 1230 registrants and 1029 runners and walkers crossing the finish line on the track at Great Neck South High School on Oct. 24.
Special thanks go to Grillo & Associates, the local insurance agency that stepped up to be the primary sponsor of the event this year.
“Our hearty congratulations to Jenney, and our sincere thanks to Rich Grillo of Grillo & Associates,” said Race Director Robyn Schneider of the host Greater Long Island Running Club.
“Everyone who took part in the Run can take pride in having helped Eden II and the Genesis Foundation in their efforts to support children and adults with autism through specialized programs designed to help them achieve the highest possible quality of living throughout their lives.”
