Members of the Rambam family came out to run for a good cause in the school’s third 5K and Family Day.
After Rabbi Friedman sounded the shofar, students, alumni, parents, teachers and little children in strollers were off on a scenic run of the Five Towns. It took junior Avi Orlow just 19 minutes and 25 seconds to reach the finish line, followed 17 seconds later by his dad, Adam Orlow, and then at 20 minutes and 5 seconds, sophomore Akiva Schuck crossed the finish line to round out the top three.
“Best Mom Runner” went to Rivky Orlow and “Best Child Runner” went to Abby Deutsch. Other notable runners included Sam Sicklick (20:19), Noah Schwartz (20:24), Natan Appel (20:25), Ethan Selevan 20:26), Daniel Moskovic (21: 40), and Benny Csillag (22:05).
While the race was in progress, the younger children who stayed behind were entertained by a Rambam Entertainment Squad of Yoni Auerbach and Zev Granik.
