On Sept. 24, the Smithtown High School West boys soccer program raised more than $17,000 in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 5K Walk/Run in Melville.
The team, on their day off from practice, organized and participated in the race with teammates and coaches in memory of coach Niki Pelliccio’s brother Vincent Pelliccio, a former Suffolk County police officer who passed away last year.
“I couldn’t have been more proud of them and how involved they were, respectful and excited to volunteer. Even our very own Carson Carey won the entire 5k!” said Pelliccio.
