Town Honors Bethpage Resident Wai Law for Running 555 Miles to Raise Money for Parkinson’s Disease

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board recently honored Bethpage resident Wai Law, who ran an extraordinary 555 miles throughout New York State this summer to help raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s disease. Wai left Buffalo in late June for an incredible 11 day run, which included pushing a stroller holding his necessities, camping gear, clothing and water. Throughout the trip, Wai raised close to $15,000, which benefitted Stony Brook University’s Thomas Hartman Center for Parkinson’s Research. Supervisor Saladino and the Town Board presented Wai with a citation for his amazing accomplishment and commended him on his inspiring work.
