"[Sunday's]'s run in NYC, with 7 of us running and one member acting as a flag bearer at the finish line. Our funds along with the support of the volunteer companies allowed us to donate $1500 to the cause. Because there were so many participants this year, 30,000+, it was amazingly congested; so it wasn't the fastest any of us have run, but we all had a great time doing it," said Andy Northshield, local Rye FD and VP of Local 2029 Rye Professional Firefighters Association.
