JackRabbit springs to action

Brooklyn Daily

Run for the money

Park Slope

Founder and pres of JackRabbit Sport, Lee Silverman, knows how to get you dressed and ready for action. From swimming to cycling and training to boot, Lee’s store offers the tops in sneaks, sweats and shirts. This year, JackRabbit Sports launched the first ever Run for the Rabbit campaign where you athletic types are trained to compete in the Hamptons Marathon, which is happening on Sept. 24, to raise money for their favorite charities. Yes, Standing O knows that the Hamptons are on the other side of our island, but our pal Lee is a born and bred Brooklynite and two of his six runners live here as well — Cipriana Cuevas of the South Slope and Ben Wymer of Cobble Hill. Lee opened his first store in Park Slope seven years ago — and even though he branched out to that other borough over the bridge, we’re letting it slide, because he still has the Brooklyn store in the heart of Park Slope and just look at the Brooklyn spirit he’s got. Standing O wishes all the runners mazel, which is our way of saying, “You run; we’ll meet you at the finish line.”
