Westbury Runners Score In 5K

Westbury residents Jenney Tesoriero and Susan Schmuck were recently named award winners in the 30th annual Runner’s Edge Long Island Women’s 5K Run, as a strong field of 439 runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes crossed the finish line on the track at Farmingdale High School.

 

 Tesoriero earned the fifth place award plaque in the 40-44 age group with a time of 23:02, and Schmuck took fourth place honors in the Athena 140-159 Weight Division with a time of 26:21. 

 

The proceeds of this year’s run will be distributed to The Open Word, a special program administered by the Dominican Sisters that provides education and job training to poor uneducated women in Huntington Station, Amityville and Wyandanch.
