Assemblyman Andrew Raia observes the start of the 18th Annual Buddy Run and Walk on April 24 with Dickinson Avenue School Principal Anne Whooley.

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C-East Northport) recently participated in the 18th Annual Buddy Run/Walk, a mile-long event near the grounds of the Dickinson Avenue Elementary School in East Northport. The April 24 get-together drew area students and their families who joined with a “buddy” to complete the course. This was Assemblyman Raia’s first year participating in the Buddy Run/Walk. The event was organized by the Dickinson Avenue School PTA.

“The Buddy Run is a great way for students to enjoy the fresh air and stay healthy,” said Raia. “I was so happy to join the Dickinson Avenue School PTA on April 24 and I thank them for organizing a very successful event. Once again, the Buddy Run/Walk takes the gold in keeping young people active and healthy!”
