We received a note from Lesli Hiller, friend of the Loop and 2nd place women’s finisher in 2009. She is race director of the Police Officer Gary Farley Memorial Run 5k in Wantagh, Long Island. The race is October 4th, 2009. Officer Gary Farley was the last Nassau Police Officer killed in the line of duty and this race is a scholarship fundraiser for students seeking a Degree in Criminal Justice.
Thanks Lesli for letting us know about this run. We hope some folks can run and join the spirit of the Leatherman to this good cause! Here is a link to download the race application form.
Bonus: here is a link to the photos that Lesli took in April 2009 while running the Loop and taking 2nd place in the women’s overall standings.
