The Bellport High School Student Council won the Optimum Charity Champions Regional $5,000 Grand Prize in Suffolk County, and will be recognized with certificates from Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, in a televised ceremony before the 5K begins on May 15th. Cablevision will also be presenting a $5,000 check in the name of Bellport High School Student Council to HELP Suffolk at this time. Cablevision noted that "all the Student Council's hard work for HELP Suffolk was amazing".

Student Council Advisor Mrs. Hoffman, stated that "with our 5K race and 1 mile fun run one week away, we are VERY close to our goal of raising $10,000 for HELP Suffolk. We received donations and sponsors from clubs in school, local businesses and corporations to turn this into a true community event. To thank everyone for their participation, we will have an Italian ices celebration in school the week after the race."
