Local Runners, Take Your Marks

All smiles as they announce plans for the 2017 Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho 5K Run are (standing, from left) CDF&S partner Chris Trainor, GLIRC Executive Director Linda Ottaviano, CDF&S partner Rob Michal, CDF&S partner Mike Brew, CDF&S partner George Likourezon, (kneeling, from left) Race Director Ric DiVeglio and CDF&S partner Ray Farrell.

Runners and their families from all over Long Island are invited to celebrate the holiday season by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Ho Ho Ho 5 Kilometer Run on Saturday, Dec. 16. This is the 30th annual running of the event, and it will be returning to the course at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage that was launched in 2014.

Thanks to the continued generosity of the Intellectual Property law firm of Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt, Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW, Steel Equities and Gold Coast Studios, and baked goods by sponsor All Round Foods and its CEO Glen Wolther, this year’s edition of the run will offer all the great amenities of past years and more.

Race Director Ric DiVeglio of the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) will be working with lots of volunteers to stage what should be another spectacular morning of family fitness and fun. Santa Claus will be making his annual visit to serve as the official starter, and hordes of reindeer, elves and other denizens of the holiday season are expected to be at the middle school to join in the fun.

There will once again be special prizes for the best holiday costume and for the first “centipede” to cross the finish line. Runners and walkers are most definitely encouraged to run/walk in costumes appropriate to the season. No dogs are allowed.

There will be a free fun run for the youngsters on the grounds of the middle school before the 5K main event.

The post-race festivities will once again include a door prize drawing that will be highlighted by the grand prize of a flat screen high definition TV and a second prize of a top-of-the-line digital camera. Everyone who is entered in the run has a chance to win a prize.

The GLIRC policy of offering a 50 percent discount for preregistered 5K runners age 16 and under will be continued for this event.

Each entrant will receive a high quality “holiday” sweatshirt and a pair of holiday socks that is just perfect for the season!

As always, a large portion of the net proceeds will be turned over to The Opening Word, an education program hosted by the Dominican Sisters to provide poor uneducated immigrant women with the tools that they need to become productive members of American society.
