On Saturday 10/17/15 we participated in the 5th Annual Commack Coalition 5K. While we’ve been sponsoring the event since 2010, Saturday we had the privilege of additionally sponsoring the finish line. Dr. Helfner and members of our team were there supporting the community.
The Commack Coalition of Caring is a dedicated group of parents, school professionals, experts in substance abuse, and community leaders, whose primary concern is the development of the whole child in helping to prevent substance use and abuse. The Coalition recognizes the important influences of the child’s environment and is focused on interventions beyond the school setting.
Many of our patients participated today either as runners or as volunteers. At least 2 of our patients took first place in their age bracket. Take a look at the great photos and video from Saturday’s amazing event.
