Runners from the Massapequa’s are invited to join in the fun at the 3rd annual Blazing Trails 4 Autism 4 Mile Run. This year, the Run will have a distinct local flavor, as the lead sponsor this year will be Grillo & Associates, Inc., a Nationwide Financial Network Agency located at 651 Broadway in Massapequa.
The Run will be held on Sunday, October 24, starting and finishing at Great Neck South High School. Net proceeds are dedicated to the Eden II and Genesis Foundation, which supports children and adults with autism through specialized programs designed to help them achieve the highest possible quality of living throughout their lives.
The Greater Long Island Running Club will be managing the event this year, with Robyn Schneider serving as the Run Director.
“We are thrilled to welcome Richard J. Grillo and his agency as our lead sponsor this year,” said Ms. Schneider. “Caring and giving local businesses like Grillo & Associates, Inc. are what the Long Island business community is all about, and we thank Richard Grillo for his support for this increasingly important event.”
Every entrant will receive one of the high quality hooded sweatshirts that have become the trademark of the Blazing Trails Run.
