GLIRC members responded and donated nearly 1,000 shoes for Soles4Soles in March. 217 of those shoes came as a result of the efforts of Michael McKillop, a junior on the Sayville High School Track & Field Team, who organized a concerted effort in the Sayville Schools to support the Soles4Souls Drive.
Donations from this year's race went to: $23,000 to BULA (Better Understanding of Life in Africa) and $2,000 donated by the Sayville Running Club to BULA; $2,500 donated to Patchogue-Medford Youth & Community Services and $2,500 donated to Seatuck Environmental Associaton.
