Let’s hear it for Goldie Lasser Sohn! The golden-plus centenarian, born on April 9, 1912, turned a magical 106 and blew out the candles on her cake at a whoop-de-doo at the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone Shore Hill Neighborhood Center, where she has been an active member since 2011 on April 11.
The former beauty queen turned the golden-plus milestone with daughter Marilyn Fisher by her side along with a host of staff and guests including Rachel Pratt, senior vice president of New York Road Runners Youth and Community Services
Goldie attributes exercise as her secret to a long life. And to prove it she joined in her special edition of her weekly Road Runners, Striders session, a coach-led workout designed for seniors. Then the former beauty queen indulged in a piece of a delicious b-day cake provided by Seniors in Touch, a healthy lunch, and tripped the light fantastic with entertainment.
In 2016 Standing O wished Goldie many more b-days to come and this year Standing O is happy to make the same wish again. “Here’s to you, Goldie, and many more.”
