Legislator Drucker Supports 4th Annual Run 4 Beigel

(EAST ISLIP, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) joined hundreds of runners, supporters and gun safety advocates at Heckscher State Park in East Islip on Saturday, Oct. 22 for the fourth annual Run 4 Beigel - a fundraising 5K run/walk that was held on what would have been Long Island native Scott Beigel’s 40th birthday.
Beigel was a geography teacher and cross-country coach who was one of the 17 people who were murdered on Feb. 14, 2018, during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre. Beigel’s courageous actions on that day have been credited with saving the lives of numerous students.
On Saturday, more than 650 runners laced up their running shoes to support the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund and its mission of sending at-risk children who have been affected by gun violence to sleep-away summer camp.
“Events like the Run 4 Beigel ensure that the legacy of Scott's heroism on one of our nation’s darkest days will live on for eternity,” Legislator Drucker said. “It was truly inspiring to be with so many people who are committed to confronting the scourge of gun violence in our society, and my heart will always be with Linda Beigel Schulman, whose strength and unwavering determination are an inspiration to us all.”
