Chuck Merritt of Plainview, competing under the colors of Merritt Environmental Consulting Corporation, of which he is the CEO, was the winner of the “Top Dog” Division of the 8th annual Marcum Workplace Challenge, held at Jones Beach State Park last month. Merritt crossed the finish line of this 3.5 mile race in 24 minutes, 42 seconds.
To be eligible to score in the Challenge competition as a “Top Dog,” you must be the most senior executive of your company.
A major turnout record was set that evening, as a record field of 8,401 athletes from 211 companies participated in this year’s Challenge; nearly 1000 more athletes than in 2012.
The Greater Long Island Running Club, with GLIRC Vice President Mindy Davidson serving as the Event Director, once again managed the Run. Charitable beneficiaries were Long Island Children’s Museum, the Long Island Children’s Medical Fund of New York, and Long Island Cares (the Harry Chapin Food Bank).
“Our congratulations to Chuck for his winning performance again this year,” stated Davidson. “He is an outstanding athlete as well as the head of an important business firm. Congratulations and thanks as well to that great corporate citizen Marcum LLP, for making this important event a reality once again in 2013.”
Merritt Environmental Consulting Corporation provides comprehensive environmental consulting services to lending institutions, landlords and attorneys.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.
“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
