How You Can Help Make the Streets Safter
Nearly two years ago, Great Neck resident Oren Bennaeim was tragically killed nearby by a reckless driver. In his honor, a 5k/Fun Run, a Day for Safer Streets, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 7, in Grace Ave Park at 7:30 a.m.
“I want to encourage everyone in our villages to think collectively about driving and crossing streets more safely,” said the hit-and-run victim’s wife, Jivanna Bennaeim. “Please join my son and me for Oren’s 5k Fun Run.”
