The 36th annual 10 Kilometer Run for ASPIRE is set for Sunday April 7 and organizers are asking for your cooperation to help make the Run successful and safe.
As in prior years, the event will attract more than 800 runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes into our community, including several of the young amputees from the ASPIRE program who are the direct beneficiaries of the Run. ASPIRE is the special program that has been set up in conjunction with the Amputee Coalition of America to provide prosthetic devices, intensive physical therapy and rehabilitation through athletics to young amputees, victims of bone cancer and traumatic amputations.
The organizers need your cooperation to assure the safety of these guests in the Plainview community.
Please avoid driving along the course while the runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes are passing through.
The Run will start at the H. B. Mattlin Middle School at exactly 9 a.m. Sunday, and the last participant will cross the finish line back at the school no later than 10:30 a.m., although most of the streets along the route will be clear
long before then.
Organizers ask that you please be especially patient with the need to halt traffic at the Old Country Road/ Round Swamp intersection, as the runners and race walkers cross over Old Country Road. Many of the runners will be attempting a 10 kilometer run for the first time and they will need all the help and encouragement they can get.
If you have any questions about the run please call us at (516) 349-7646.
