Running for Charities



    Recently, Arrow Exterminating Copresident Jackie Grabin and Race Director Rosemary Camilleri of the Greater Long Island Running Club presented checks to two Long Island charities. The checks, totaling $3,000, came from the proceeds of the Arrow Exterminating Company Long Island Women’s Run, which was sponsored by Arrow Exterminating Company and staged by the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) under the direction of Ms. Camilleri.  Representatives from both the Long Island OCEANS (the Long Island Ovarian Cancer Education Advocacy Network & Support Group) and the Patchogue-based Thursday’s Child, which provides housing assistance, financial help and other services to Long Island people living with HIV/AIDS, expressed their gratification for the generous donations.


    GLIRC, the largest and most active running club in both Long Island counties, and Arrow Exterminating, Long Island’s largest pest control organization and coincidentally, a business managed by women, joined efforts and utilized this women’s-only running event as a fundraiser for two very worthwhile charities.


    “We were thrilled to be able to partner with such a responsible and community-minded Long Island-based business as Arrow Exterminating, as they celebrate their 60th year of serving the people of Long Island,” observed GLIRC Race Director Rosemary Camilleri, who is also the Director of Personnel, Sayville School District.  “More to the point, we were pleased to be able to work with Arrow Exterminating to promote running and fitness for Long island’s women at the same time as we were able to support two very important Long Island-based charities.”
