Morgan Park was, once again, a perfect setting for the Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. 12th annual “WALK Because We Care.” On Sunday, June 6, residents from Glen Cove and the surrounding areas participated in this year’s event which included music by DJ Pace, refreshments and educational materials about sun safety and skin cancer awareness from the Biggane Foundation. Many people from the Glen Cove community supported this effort and contributed to its success. Our thanks go to Mayor Ralph Suozzi and the City Council and Darcy Belyea and the Recreation Department. Thank you to our local businesses - Glen Cove Bagel Café, Glen Street Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks Coffee Company for their generous refreshment donations and to the Glen Cove Florist for its donation of festive balloons. Thank you also to the Glen Cove School District and the administrators, teachers and students for supporting this event. Many thanks to Deborah Pearsall and Ellen Lynch and members of DECA and Student Senate who assist year after year with the activities. Thank you to Mr. Chris Barry who arranged for a student from the GCHS Television Studio to videotape the event and to Anthony Gallego of Gil Associates Photography who was on hand, once again, to photograph the event.
Most of all, our grateful appreciation goes to the families, friends and school groups who showed their support by joining us at WALK 2010. We are so fortunate to live in a community where people of all ages, from every neighborhood, join together to increase awareness about early detection and prevention of cancer.
