David Lerner Associates and the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) are proud to pay well-deserved tribute to Long Island’s Finest through the 29th annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run. In this, we continue to celebrate the ongoing efforts of the outstanding men and women who serve on the police forces here on Long Island.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s David Lerner Associates Police Appreciation Run will be enjoyed virtually rather than as a “live” event.
Run the 5 Kilometers at your convenience, whenever and wherever you choose between now and September 30, 2020. Print out a personalized bib to wear while you run, and when you finish, print a custom finisher’s certificate for bragging rights!
Every registered participant will receive a high-quality 1/4 zip race-themed hooded windbreaker jacket! In addition, all will be entered into the door prize drawing for Runner’s Edge gift cards, and more! The entry fee is only $35.
This year, the first $1000 of the proceeds of the Run will be donated to the Nassau Police Running Club and its Scholarship fund. The traditional race that benefits this fund could not be held this year, and GLIRC is doing its part to help supplement the resulting gap in funding.
The remainder of the proceeds is dedicated to the Long Island The Police Crisis Fund that has been established to aid law enforcement officers and their families in times of personal financial emergencies.
