    Despite the gloom of a rainy May morning, runners of all ages eagerly toed the starting line at the fourth annual "5K Family Fun Walk/Run" at Jon's Park benefiting Winthrop-University Hospital's Cancer Center for Kids.

    The participants, who helped raise more than $50,000, turned out not only to support the Center, but also to celebrate the life of Genelle Taney, a Great Neck teenager, who passed away after battling cancer.
