East Islip students and community members were among the participants in the EJ Autism Foundation’s first annual AutisMile race, held on Oct. 17. The event proceeds will fund the foundation’s work in supporting Long Island programs that help children with autism.

“The AutisMile provided an opportunity to showcase Main Street East Islip on behalf of a great cause,” EJ Autism Foundation founder Bea Huste-Petersen said. “A road mile is a bit of a rare event, but extremely competitive and exciting. It was a great opportunity to have fun running or on the sidelines. We had competitors from as far as New York City and Washington, DC competing for bragging rights and prize money. The event was a great success and we will return next year.”
