Once again, Team Winglovitz, who runs in memory of the late Gary Winglovitz, had the most participants in the DYC River Run!

DYC River Run sets records in registrants, money raised

By Jeanne SagerCALLICOON — It was a record breaking kind of day. The Delaware Youth Center saw more than 550 registrants at its annual River Run 5K/10K run and walk - the most ever for the 19-year-old fundraiser. Sunday's event brought in some $14,000 for the center to help fund events throughout the year for families in the Callicoon area.
Helping push the totals over the edge were the members of the team put together by Amy Stewart in memory of her husband Gary Winglovitz, and a large group of runners from nearby Indian Head Camp, who took largest and second largest team respectively.
“It was a phenomenal race today with an amazing turnout - our largest ever!” Race Director Ann Santoro said. “The Delaware Youth Center is so grateful to all the runners and walkers that come out every year to support us and to all the new participants that have joined our River Race family. Special thanks to the Winglovitz Team for their continued support in memory of Gary. Thank you to all our generous sponsors and donors helping to make this race possible and a huge thank you to all our volunteers who have worked so hard to bring it all together. This is the Delaware Youth Center's largest fundraiser ...read more
