Dr. Michael Cocilovo and Dr. Gil Rodriguez of New City Chiropractic Center announced this week that the New City Gladiators raised nearly $4,000 for The Wounded Warrior Project thanks to the efforts of the doctors, patients and friends. A total of 21 individuals participated in two different events to raise money for the organization. One team of 17 men, women and teens participated in the “The Color Run” at CitiField billed by the founders as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ while a team of four individuals participated in the grueling Spartan Sprint in Tuxedo Park.
“By having two teams and adding The Color Run we were able to include more people and make it a more enjoyable challenge for everyone,” stated Dr. Cocilovo. This was the second year that the group created a team to raise money for a good cause.
