Old Bethpage Man Brews Big Run

Old Bethpage’s Jossi Fritz-Mauer, 33, was the second finisher overall in a field of 1,231 finishers in the Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery on Jan. 13, with a finishing time of 57 minutes, 19 seconds, a pace of 5:38 minutes per mile.
The Blue Point Brewery was essential to the success of the event and special kudos go to Blue Point president Jenna Lally, and to Scott Pflug, Jack Slattery and Chris Diorio of her staff for their active and invaluable support.

Race organizers were happy that they will once again be able to turn over a significant sum of money from the race proceeds to Better Understanding of Life in Africa (BULA), as BULA’s Melissa and Tom Fricke once again went far beyond what a race beneficiary normally does, including providing some great hot food to go with the beer, heroes, pastries provided by All Round Foods, and other refreshments.

A major cash donation will also be made to the Patchogue-Medford Youth and Community Services to support their mission “to provide support, strength and opportunity for positive growth to youth, their families and the community through education, recreation, intervention and outreach.” New this year, a donation will also be made to the Seatuck Environmental Association and the great work it is doing to promote the conservation of Long Island’s wildlife and environment.
