While the inaugural Blazing Trails 4-Autism 4 Mile Run was held six months ago, and the 2nd annual Run will be held six months from now – Sunday, Nov. 8 – there has been no interruption in the solid support for the event from the Long Island business community.
Angela Susan Anton, publisher of Anton Community Newspapers, announced a continuing “spectrum of support” for the run. The goal of the Blazing Trails 4-Autism Run is to increase awareness of autism and raise funds to help children and adults with autism and their families on Long Island. The run is conducted for the benefit of the Eden II/Genesis Programs, which provide specialized community based services and other opportunities to individuals with autism.
